For the first time in my life I'm showing you a school project. You probably already know that I'm studying interior architecture which includes designing a lot of interiors from houses and shops to catwalks and exhibitions but also designing furniture. It was the first time now that I had to make a real object, not only drawings. The mission was to create an object, just an object which could be anything but we had to make three choices without hesitating: the inspiration source, the material and the technique. My inspiration source was my personal blog, for the material I choose leather and the technique was stability. I did a lot of research and experiments to explore the stability of imitation leather and real leather but nothing can defeat the strength of real leather. Making a cylinder shape gave the leather te most stability and because my inspiration was my blog I went for a magazine holder. I designed my object and discovered that I also could use it upside down as a side table! Above you can see the result which I made on my own without any professional help (except the round oak plate, it's made mechanically). There's no construction inside, it's just as you can see it: leather and a wood plate. I gave it the name 'Sadel' which refers to saddle because it's also made of saddle leather and also because it looks a bit like a saddle. After all I'm very proud of my first real object designed and made by myself! Do you like it?
