Forma

The Forma Lounge Chair showcases an exploration into leather manipulation, particularly focusing on wet-formed techniques. The project delves into extensive research and experimental processes, including testing various forming methods, adhesive tests, and exploring the effects of water temperature and drying methods on leather hardness and form stability. Through iterative design and fabrication processes, which incorporate CNC molding and metal fabrication, the chair pushes the boundaries of traditional leather use.
