Help help help ! I need your help to realize my final school project !
Student in global design, in Paris, I will present my final project end of June. I have to design a piece of furniture from drawings to prototyping. I choose to work on an armchair.
This armchair is made for waiting areas in public spaces (like entrance halls) or particular spaces as un auxiliary chair in transition spaces, small rooms... The line is inspired from traditional armchairs. The aluminium structure brings finess to the line : the object seems ethereal thanks to its see trough shape. The seat part is drawn by a curved piece of metal which permits the maintain of the entire structure avoiding wind-bracing.

Allocation of funds
To prototype the structure, an metalworker worked on the feet and the seat for a week. Feet will be painted but the metal aspect of the inside part remains.
Material + labour = 1350 €
The structure has been realized at the beginning of may.
Last step is the upholstery work. I asked to a professional to fix the foam and the fabric together on the piece of furniture. This work is worth 800€ and I didn’t realize it would be such an investment.
Therefore, I will require your help to achieve this work . Any kind of financial participation would be very precious ! This collect will cover the expenditure of the upholstery work and the fabric cost.
All collected funds will be collected on my account to finance this project. If I get more than the targetted amount, it will help to finance extra elements ( flyers, poster of the armchair for my final presentation) and to cover the other elements of the prototyping (structure and paint).
I would be so grateful to you for any king of help, even the smalest because your help is very precious here and could permit to finish this prototype. Not only because it is necessary for my diploma, but also because it could alow to market this armchair.
Thanks a lot to everyone for your help !
