Chair Mobile Finished!

Congratulations to Jeff and Taylor on their new girl Leah!

We decided to make Leah a mobile that would subliminally get her interested in Industrial Design.

The cross members are bent ash, made on the same from as the wood fenders that were made earlier this year. We picked our five favourite chairs to immortalize and laser cut them out of 1/4" plywood.

Bonus points if you can identify each chair!

Panton Chair by Verner Panton
Wiggle Chair by Frank Ghery
Cord Chair by Jacques Guillon

Molded Plywood Chair by the Eames`
Rocking Chair by the Eames'

The chairs are laser etched on both sides to show a bit more of the chair detail and shadows. Each chair was scaled so that the weighed roughly the same, and the mobile would hang straight.

Since these photos I have shortened the bottom cross member so that it can rotate freely within the top chairs. Unfortunately I was not able to take more photos, but from this angle it looks pretty much the same.

Enjoy Leah!
