An exploration of mass manufacturing techniques, ‘Nacelle chair’ was achieved through materiality and methods commonly used in large batch production. A play on techniques used in bathtub and sink manufacturing, ‘Nacelle Chair’, obtains its form from the manipulation of thermoplastics and the reinforcing qualities of fiberglass. Further, the nature of this technique allows for complex geometry and organic forms to be manufactured rapidly and with the potential of multiplicity. The based of the this chair was also conceived with efficiency and replication in mind, as its design is stripped of complexity and is configured with functionality as the primary factor. As a result, ‘Nacelle Chair’ pays homage to the turn of the century modernist ideology, that the democratization of great design can be achieved through the means of industry.
