Twisted and Molded for Sitting

The following is an exercise in sculpting. A project of carbon fiber proportions, one made when the designer Allen Chester G. Zhang was experimenting with shapes and materials. The project Zhang set for himself was a chair for hotels and cafes, and indeed that’s what’s appearing in the gallery inside this post. A lovely black and hopefully charcoal gray can be seen in each image. This is a chair made for sitting back and drinking up a cold soda or coffee all day long.

On the front you sit, in the back you store. A loose fitting storage bit on the back spells out how relaxed your situation in and around this chair is meant to be, and smooth flowing will your chi and blood be moving.
