Didn’t we always know that sketching is a good thing for architects, artists, designers? Sketching expresses the idea. It’s a great tool for visualization. Don’t you sometimes feel that a sketch is better than the real realized design that’s built in real?

The feeling, the mood, the soul of the sketch is sometimes more alive, more beautiful. It doesn’t always have to be CAD drawings or parametric design or complex 3D digital models. It doesn’t always have to be high tech fabrication machines or laser cutters. It doesn’t have to be like that every time we want to create something new, something innovative.

The great artist here brought the 2D sketch into a real 3D chair that you can sit on. He changed nothing. Not even one sketchy line. These lines were transformed into wires hammered and assembled together to form a stiff sketchy structure that’s functional in every possible way. The designer values sketching and believes that it could lead to something and he proved that. You can’t say that sketching is fantasy because it’s not. Get out of the box!
