Granma's secrets





My recent project in school was about creating a secret space for grandma to put all her things that she wants to keep a secret even after she's dead. Because when you die everything is pretty much revealed since someone (most likely your children) will clean out your entire apartment. Although, I thought it would be interesting if it would be found maybe 50 years later by grandchildren who perhaps didn't know their grandmother that well. That's why I wanted to interoperate the shape of her cats face in the back piece...so that there would be this funny silhouette that might make the relatives want to keep the chair. It's supposed to be a sofa chair... so that it will not moved around very much... making it harder to discover the secrets.
I'm not really fond of how the chair itself turned out (it's just built in a very small scale) but I like the idea behind it.

  2. You've put good thought into this! And your chair is very unique-looking (no one would possibly want to give it away, or if they did, then they didn't deserve to find out it's secrets). I've always loved the idea of secret compartments (I keep wishing to someday have a desk with little cubbyholes and hidden drawers).
