Mama zeppelin gave birth to a floating baby zep!, this one is only 1.5m long as mother zep is 2.3m
heres the pix
ok, first i need to say this was just a little idea i had to use an old trolley that was in the garage!. but the kids really liked it which meant i had to live with it in the house which in turn meant i had to make it slightly presentable! . although this sort of conversion furniture is a world away from what i normally do, it is impossible not to learn something from the process and hopefully integrate it into a ” proper” project. for that reason i´ll put the pics on here…be gentle i know its pretty ugly!!
ok , so the story of this thing! ?. i did the original chair years ago ..it was probably the worst chair design ever made, very heavy, pretty unstable but ergonomically pretty correct. its been knocking around here ever since shouting for an up-grade. So the base was chopped off and the shape shortened.the new base wasn´t intentionally made to make it look like a funeral pyre! , I was actually trying out structural solidity with fine bars. but hey another example of accidental furniture comes to life! ;))
“with this bed i wanted to create something with a humble personality, a close friend who you spend half your life with rather than an attention seeking protagonist always looking to impress.the wood is left as honest as possible without hiding its marks and scars. all construction details are shown clearly. The added text further deepens the sense of comfort and humour of the piece.”
“con esta cama queria crear un objeto con personalidad humilde, como un buen amigo con quien compartir tu vida en vez de un protagonista siempre buscando attencion. la madera esta dejado lo mas honesto possible sin esconder o mascarar sus defectos y todos los detalles de construccion estan claramente enseñados. el texto añadido profundiza el sentido de humor y comodidad de la pieza.
