The wooden throne is a chair i have been developing since the pandemic.
stemmed from boredom into a physical...
now physical objects

in 2020, when there was nothing but time
and was spending most of it sitting down.
i was thinking of new "fun" ways to sit

>first drawing of the idea 2020

i was hanging in boulder city nevada with my buddy skyler
(who owns an autobody shop) he offered to help me (who's never built anything)

i thought bulding a chair with stairs might be ironic
or funny
(which i guess it wasnt in the end)
was a good idea

we started mapping the thing out
considering that i am a noob in furniture making + i love brutalism
the design seemed perfect for both my skill level and taste level.

considering that my buddy owns an autobody shop
he mainly had metal cutting tools
such as this CNC laser cutter
and a bunch of scrap diamond cut metal that had been rusting in the back of his shop

we got straight to work.

at this point i didnt realize how heavy this fucking this was going to be.
only three pieces deep and i moving this thing was already a nightmare.
but, as things started to materialize infront of my eyes.
i was getting excited!

after getting a few more pieces done
we got a custom piece of foam cut for the chair.

at this point,
most of the chair was built
but moving this thing was a real pain in the ass, and working with metal isnt necessarily the easiest thing in the world.
the welding process was taking forever
the shit was heavy
boohoo, whatever

then voila
my first piece of furniture made from scratch, almost
(not counting the mustang chair because we repurposed old car seats for that, but we'll get into that later.)

i was fucking hyped
this thing was sick
and without thinking about it
the chair fair more medieval than anything.
it truly felt like you were sitting on a throne.
walking up steps to sit, and then being at a higher level than the people standing,
both figuratively and literally elevate you.
which wasnt the original intent of the design.

the chair sat there for 2 years.
but fast forward some time
after spending some time away from it
spending some time in japan and finding out about the japanese wood burning technique called "Shou sugi ban"
i wanted to revisit the throne.
and this time find an easier way to assemble it using wood.

i thought that a set of gradients would look great
from plain wood - to burn to a crisp

as about a few months ago
they became a real fucking thing
and the great part about it is
the chairs when all put together in the right configuration
form kind of a reverse conversation pit
what would usually be INTO the ground and relaxed
is now lifted up and feels idk...
grand ?
i cant find the right words describe it yet.
but having everyone seated up and be at eye level is a sick experience.

i was stressing myself for not doing more but in the end
the speed at what you do something
doesnt always matter

taking breaks from shit and revisiting them is alright too
