    Cool Speed Modeling Challenge #214 - Iconic Chairs

    Speed Modeling Challenge #214 - Iconic Chairs



    Rules:

    1. Every week there will be a subject for you to model along with a time limit. You should spend no longer than the allocated time, then post a render of your model. As in most challenges like this, your honesty on modeling times is essential. How you interpret the brief is up to you as long as the final model conforms to what is asked for.
    2. Post a wire-frame and a render at 800x600 or larger. (For wireframe help go to: http://www.artssphere.com/plugins/polygoncoloring.php)
    3. LightWave must be used for modeling. 3rd party Plug-ins are allowed.
    4. You can enter as many times as you like, posting each in this thread. If you run over the time, the model can still be posted but won't be subject to the judging.
    5. Time spent on texturing, setting up a scene for a render and rendering is not included in the allocated period.
    6. The winner is judged by the challenge starter and the prize is to set up the challenge after next week's.
    *************************************************

    This week's topic: Iconic Chairs

    Okay, so my tastes run towards mid-century modern. But any iconic design will do.... maybe something Victorian, or a classic schoolroom desk, or something ultra contemporary. So many great designs are based on "simple" geometric forms.


    Modeling time: 60mins

    Deadline: Wednesday, May, 1st, 2013, 22:00 G.M.T

    Come on in. Have a seat!
    System Specs: A pile of sand, a couple of wires, a real live mouse and a beer.

    Ah! A subject very close to my heart. I am a chair geek and have recently bought Eames (nice, xwampyx!), Ercol and Parker Knoll examples that my wife hated and grew to love.
    People who know nothing about furniture always comment on them.

    If I get time, I'll attempt Hans Wegner's Papa Bear................

    Paimio Lounge Chair

    Hi,

    Too long since I joined the challenge, but found some spare 30 minutes to model this one.

    Render with Octane and some PS. Not too much time spend too.

    Greetings,
    Sigurd

    The last chair you will ever sit in. modeling time 59 minutes used up pretty much every second. Still didn't have time to add buckles and holes to the straps, ugh. I suck at texturing so I just put some of lightwaves premade stuff on there and rendered. Anyways here's my ICONIC chair.

    Damn, someone took my idea!

    They may not be iconic, but they are ubiquitous...

    Eero Aarnio Bubble Chair.

    Modeling time = 32 mins

    Very simple design, in the end:

    1. Ball 8x12
    2. Remove 4 rows
    3. New Thicken tool to thicken glass
    4. Add Metal loop to end
    5. Cushions created by selecting geometry from the glass and copy paste to new layer, then move points and thicken again.
    6. Chain and loop was created using pipe tool in LWCAD (then copy paste).
    7. Rotate to prefered angle (using pic refs)

    Thanks for the run through Waves of light, most interesting.

    Here's the modelling of my chair. pretty simple until the thickness plug in.
