In my M.F.A. thesis, I am going to talk about the process of revising my
furniture series and designing new furniture in the series, which includes Chair ONE, Table 1⁄2, Bed ONE, and Sofa ONE. I am revising the area that didn't work very well.
In Chair ONE, I have revised the seating area to provide better stability. In Table 1⁄2, I have revised the support structure of the table. As I learned from the current structure, the tabletop start to bend as the tabletop dimension increased, as my table 1⁄2 has three different kinds of tabletop. I have added a second beam across the table legs to increase support to the tabletop.
In Bed ONE, I have added supporting structure for the bed frame. I noticed the plastic beam bent as weight added in a duration of time. A new supporting structure is needed to provide better stability of the structure.
In Sofa ONE, I have increased the dimension of the seating area. The plastic piece on the seating area isn't long enough to support the cushion. It doesn't provide a comfortable seating position for user. The only solution is to extending the seating structure. Also, a supporting structure added to better support for the seating area
Finally, I have designed a dining set for this series, which include a dining table and four chairs. The chair and the table are based on the design of my furniture series, but it will be a completely new set of furniture.
