Emmanuel Carrillo has been active member on the core77 discussion boards since 2005. In that time I have seen him develop as a student and as a designer. Emmanuel has been thoroughly documenting his latest project, the famous University of Cincinnati "Chair Quarter." Chairs are an interesting product. Though they have a fixed function, they are constantly evolving with a huge continuum in price, style and form factor. A simple paradox I noted that occurs in products that have specific functions last year in calculators.
Check out Emmanuel's interpretation of the classic side chair as he moves from image boards, to sketches, to mock ups, to final functional prototype on the discussion boards HERE
