Chaise in France

I recently recieved this photograph of my chaise in its new home in France!


The above photo was the final mould for my Outcast chair and below is a shot of me blending some woodchips to begin casting the chair.

Devine Upholstery

I have been collaborating with Devine Upholstery on my 'Outcast' project. I commissioned them to manufacture the removable cushion for my chair. This is the second time I have worked with Devine Upholstery, the first time being my chaise. The company is a local Edinburgh resource who are always up for a challenge, they have always delivered on great quality and speed.

Outcast - Final Renderings

These were my final renders for my Outcast chair. The photographs were taken in St. Andrews Square and Dalkeith Country Park in Edinburgh.

Outcast - Design Evolution

The image above is the design I chose to proceed with. I liked the simplicity of it and that it did not shadow the mulch. The images below were the other ideas I was playing with.

Outcast - First rendering

This is a first render at a very early stage in my design process. I was experimenting with the idea of using a contrasting material on points where the user would sit and touch. I later decided as the material was so intesting, I should limit the design and focus on the form of the chair.

Outcast - Hand Renderings

These hand renderings were to illustrate the environment which the chair was aimed at. I hope this also helped to show the clientele and market class.

Outcast - Models

These models are were made early on in the prototype stage, as creating a mould for a entire chair was a lot more complicated as I first anticipated. the model helped to calculate angles and exactly how the mould would go together.

Outcast - Sketches

These sketches were my initial ideas for my Honors project. I wanted to explore under utilised materials and the one which I chose to develop was mulch. I also wanted to push the boundries in terms of form and creating something which was exciting and innovative.

Homes & Interiors Scotland Exhibition '08

This is my chaise on exhibition at the Homes & Interiors Exhibition at the SECC in Glasgow. This was the first piece I have sold, it went to a couple from the west of Scotland who are keen collectors of new designs.


This video was filmed during the Bute @ ECA exhibition which took place in Edinburgh during the design festival '08. The exhbition featured my chaise long that I designed during my 3rd year at ECA.


These are photographs of my finished chaise long which was on exhibition in both Edinburgh and Glasgow. This was the first piece I sold and it went to a lovely couple from the North of Scotland who are keen collecters of new designers work. It is upholstered in stunning fabric by Bute Fabrics.
