Auto-Glassback Chair #5

Jeffrey Evarts's avatar Jeffrey Evarts

My entry is Auto-Glassback chair #5, the latest of a series of Auto-Glassback chairs . The steel frame is tree-like and organic. I created a spring-loaded armature with inline skate wheels that ride on the back of the glass. This creates give when your back rests against the glass. I also created a hinge system using the two given holes in the auto glass that allows for easy removal for cleaning. The seat is made of vacuum formed birch wood with curly maple and mahogany vernier. My chairs are all unique, fully functional, and very comfortable. Please be aware that the image of Auto-Glassback chair #5 depicts the piece in progress, as it will be completed in time for entry for Artprize 2011.
