big chair made for the School of Visual Arts trade show booth for ICFF in NY Javitz Center
16’ high and towered over walls of the booth made from 3/4” pine plywood all edges mitre
so everything looks solid
had alot of fun with this project and the students
the ICFF show is all the top furniture designers and companies in the world
showcasing their products for the trade and public to see

are display won best booth award for the event
which is pretty impressive considering companies spend thousands to build some of the displays

This is amazing. The first photo looks like only the chair is the normal size and the guys looks pretty small. Maybe you can take some more interesting photo with rules of perspective?

So how is this made? Are the legs solid wood, or a hollow box?

i left the finish raw wood
the chair is now in storage the school can use it for displays in future
the construction was hollow boxed plywood with mitre edges then bolted together at joints
the top part of the back slipped into bottom part of legs
i dont have any pictures of construction
added 2 more photos that show scale
walls of booth were 10’ high so chair went 6’ higher than top of wall
