Festivals and Conditions!1. Conditions Rain is a main factor at festivals, especially in Ireland at such festivals as Oxegen, so the chair must be durable. 2. Transport Transport of luggage is a big problem, due to long travels, and much equipment, therefore, the chair must be compact, and easily adjustable for setup. 3. Disposal Alot of camping equipment and rubbish tent to be destroyed and left behind for quick and light exits at the end of a festival, therefore the chair must be easily disposible and recycable to keep carbon footprints down.
My Mini Model Experiments!1st Model This was my first model. The advantages were, it was easily assembled, however it was too basic and showed no creativity, also it was too “square” and lacked comfort. 2nd ModelThe positive side of this model was therocking chair effect I was going for allowingthe user to relax, however, when I built thisto a scale of 1:5, it proved too weak on thesides, and also the slots coming across weretoo sharp on the body.
3rd Model This here was my final design I set upon. The plus side was it was supportive with an enforced base consisting of 3 beams, two applied as a cross, and one running straight along the back. The second benefit was its comfort with the use of curved flats running along the back and seat. The only downside, is there is no arm rests or even supports on this 1:5 scale model. The Final Model!These are the 3 different mini models Ihave based my main model on, all 3mini models were made to a scale of1:5, based on the full model being700mm running horizontally andvertically.
