In the spring of 2022 I had the opportunity to do an architectural design residency at the Fallingwater Institue’s Highmeadow complex. The weeklong program culminated in a two-day design challenge in which participants were tasked to design a chair using only 8 2’x2’ sheets of plywood and zipties. To make things more challenging, each designer was randomly assigned assigned a word representing a use case - words like “eating,” “performance,” or in my case “Repair.”

During the inital ideation process, I had some pre-concieved ideas for chairs and used my time to create as many sketch models as I could think of (Fig 2). Drawing inspiration from the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and the natural landscape of the Laurel Highlands, I created concepts that I felt were strong, but I struggled with relating my ideas with the concept of Repair. Feeling stuck, I was urged by facilitators to explore more organic and less angular shapes. I looked to elements of nature and my eye was caught by a pair of birds nests settled in the rafters of our studio space. A moment of inspiration struck me and I rushed back to sketch out my idea. Like Roger Ebert said: “The muse visits during the act of creation, not before.”

The Re:pair chair offers a pair of nestled seats that force the user into a physically lower, grounded perspective. The posture of each chairs legs spread toward its partner, suggesting openness, with the round seats reminicent of the birds nests. When both chairs are occupied, the two seated figures are pushed to adopt the same posture of openness and closeness to the other. It also makes a great coffee table!
