One Tool One Stool Chair

For the first project in the GID program at RCA, we were challenged to create a furniture piece using only one tool and one material. I chose to work with metal shears and sheet metal. The brief was titled "One Tool, One Stool" but after experimenting with the material and the forms I could create using a single sheet, I was more interested in the curves possible in a chair rather then a stool. With the exception of a straightedge and pencil the piece was fabricated using only one pair of metal shears for cutting, bending, and connecting.
