The first project in the 3D Foundations course is for students to design a cardboard chair with a maximum volume of 18 inches that could hold a five pound flour sack.   Justin Oeftger designed and built a chair with strong geometric elements using a triangular pattern to unify the composition and create a sturdy chair.

Brianna Litchfield used geometry as well as a design influence to create a visually unified and sturdy design.  The overall organic shape creates an inviting chair that is influenced by a bean bag or a deflated soccer ball.

These two examples convey the variety of ways that designers approach a familiar subject with their own twist.
