For my project I made an upholstered chair on a spring.

One thing that I was inspired by at the beginning of class was a quote that said, “Design shouldn’t be that serious.” I wanted my chair to be fun and simple. I wanted my chair to be something that made people smile. Some things that I thought about during the design process, were playgrounds and how kids have so much fun playing in them. But for adults, we don’t really have a space like playgrounds for ourselves, so for me, I really wanted to try to add a fun element into a normal, everyday object.
