Peacock Chair / A natural parametric design for a Chair by UUfie
Taking the inspiration from nature. Peacock Chair is an expression of trying to capture a natural instance such as a flower blossoming or a bird’s tail fanning in a ritual courtship. Peacock represents these frozen moments of beauty and happiness.
The design and fabrication process began like children playing with paper by cutting, bending and folding it, to create a chair simply now called the “Peacock” for its resemblance.
Peacock Chair is made from a type of acrylic composite that has the ability to transform, but requires a delicate process involving manipulating a single sheet within minutes. The idea of freezing a fluid moment is literally captured as the material is stretched by hand. Resulting in a lace-like appearance of a structurally strong material.
