Crease is a set of armchairs and side tables made from one single sheet of clear acrylic. By simply cutting and using a heat-bending technic, this set of furniture has its inherent minimal design aesthetics from the design process to the final appearance. The transparent both showcases the collection's fold details and builds a lightsome experience while using the furniture.
Crease is designed with the idea of minimizing the use of metalware and accessories while making and assembling furniture. By using one single sheet of clear acrylic and other production methods such as CNC milling and heat-bending, the collection minimizes material waste, optimizes the manufacturing process and provides a set of contemporary designed furniture.
The name Crease comes from designing around the concept of minimizing material use in furniture design. Inspired by paper folding, "creasing" paper automatically creates two joint surfaces, which eliminates the use of adhesive or metalware. I chose Acrylic because it is one of my favorite modern materials for many design tasks. By heating and processing it correctly, acrylic can be finalized to any desired shape. I decided to use clear acrylic since it creates a fragile illusion while showcasing all of the pieces' fold details.
It all started with drawing and cutting from a single sheet of paper. I tried many different ways of folding and cutting before finalizing this design.
