Another work in progress

Postby davidheim1 » Sun Jun 07, 2020 4:39 pm

smilow lounge chair copy.png
This one is a Midcentury Modern lounge chair and ottoman. Mel Smilow, a designer who sold his work through a half-dozen furniture stores that he owned, created the original in 1956. The frame is walnut; the webbing, dark leather.
In the model, the webbing isn't actually woven. I traced the contours of the seat area, used those edges to loft a face, copied the face and moved it up a smidge, then connected the two faces and made them a single component. Then I laid out the line pattern to create the illusion of woven leather.
I'll follow the same procedure to make the webbing on the chair, which will take some time. But stay tuned.
Best,

Looks great! What do you mean by "laid out the line pattern". You drew edges over the component or over the face? It may not be woven but has holes?

I laid out the criss-cross pattern of lines on the face of the component. Where there should be space between the pieces of webbing, I push/pulled a hole.
