Modular Experiments


Graeme Mills

The last and final studio of the NuVu term was on modular furniture. Starting out in day one we knew we wanted to make something interesting and that stands out. We went through different ideas but settled on making our inspiration the facehugger from the movie “Alien”. We originally wanted the chair to be a chestburster but settled on the facehugger. The reason being is that looking at the skeleton and simply bending the tail to imitate the back of the chair, the body being a seat, and the legs being of course the legs of the chair this creatures universal skeletal structure could be transformed into a piece of modular furniture with ease. A facehugger, for those that are not familiar with the film, is an insect-like or scorpion like creature with eight legs and long tail.
