brooklyn-based industrial designer lynn yuhan lin explores the physicality of the art media, the contemporary socio-cultural phenomenon’s and their relationship to individuality in her work. with her designs, she wants to convey sensations and evoke sweet memories. the ‘OTT (over the top) nesting chair’ set is made of maple plywood using CNC routing process, where 17 sheet plywood panels are cut out to profile and then glued together to form the volume. the sides are then ground and sanded into shape. felt foot and carved grips are finally added to add usability to the design.
four maple leaf color stripes are painted on each chair to give the personality of the ‘members of the family’, and also dedicates to the designer’s nostalgia for canada. it is a one-off furniture piece that lies between the functional chair and an emotional artwork. it is finished with tung oil and pasting wax.
