YD Spotlight: Nicholas Baker’s Chair Sketch Challenge Pt.2 – Yanko Design


Every week (although a timing isn’t utterly fixed), we see a chair blueprint on my Instagram feed, and after carrying seen and favourite dozens of them, my mind can roughly now commend @nickpbaker’s character and code of creativity anywhere.

Given a hashtag of #nickschairsketches, Baker uploads surprising unpractical chair designs roughly each week. The chairs showcase expertise that one frequency sees in seat design, as concepts take impulse from utterly literally anywhere. Scroll down to see a few of a favorites.

Designer: Nicholas Baker


I dub this chair a inside-out chair given of a approach it’s built. With a hard, molded plywood outside, and a removable plush felt pillow inside, a chair can be used both as a tough seating device or a soothing seating device, or even a lounging device by mixing a two. Clever, isn’t it?!


Building on a thought of converting chairs into loungers, this pattern indeed comes with a slatted construction and a hinge that allows a lounging procedure to overlay right into a chair. Fold it in and we have a nice, stout chair. Fold it out and you’ve got a chair with a nifty leg-rest!


Here’s a third approach of going about it. Stackability! The chair comes with a leg-rest right underneath it. Lift a chair adult and flip a leg-rest over and you’ve got a chair that’s somewhat shorter, though has a good gentle place to keep your outstretched legs… or maybe use a leg-rest as an ottoman sofa or side-table.


I’d suppose a knave from a Pixar film carrying this chair with piranhas inside it. Probably not a kind of chair you’d see in Peta’s headquarters, this one is indeed an aquarium we can lay on. Made from thick glass, a aquarium is done like a chair and can indeed accommodate a tellurian on it, nonetheless we doubt if a fish would like that view.


However, if you’re going to mix chair and water, this is positively a approach to do it. This chair/pool hybrid is ideal for people of all ages. Just fill a H2O in and kick a heat! Hey Nick, how about building a bottle-holder into this one.


Two expected materials and one doubtful element come together to make this chair. First, you’ve got a bent-metal base/framework, on that lies, secondly, a pillow that covers not usually a seating area though a backrest too, and afterwards right during a end, you’ve got rubber-bands that reason a pillow to a base! Quite unconventional, if we ask me…


Another metal+cushion multiple that has my heart. This judgment indeed creates an enclosing for a beanbag, giving it a some-more tangible structure than being a lumpy blob of leather on a floor. The beanbag sits in a steel framework, and can simply accommodate one human. Who knows, sitting on this arrange of beanbag might indeed be some-more comfortable!


Perfect for a chairman who wants to lay though kindly pitch too, this chair judgment comes with a steel horizon from that it hangs. Nothing too ordinary here, though we indeed adore a form on this one, and a use, or rather overuse, of arcs and winding lines.


This judgment hurdles a really thought of packaging. Most products come packaged in styrofoam to strengthen them from damage, though what if your product IS a styrofoam? Designed around a cuboidal form (because of shipping boxes) this chair comes with a possess side-table. Made wholly from styrofoam (polystyrene), a chair most weighs nothing, though can simply take a weight of one, or even dual humans on it. And don’t worry if some of a styrofoam chips off a bit. It usually adds to a chair’s surprising charm!


This judgment is done from a unaccompanied form of marble, sliced into 4 pieces (quite like bread). The largest bit becomes a seating area, while a remaining 3 pieces turn a dual legs and a backrest. Aside from a scooped detail, this pattern doesn’t need most bid or time to put together, given it literally involves rupturing and public (with no glue or fasteners concerned either). The choice of marble gives a chair a reward appeal, and I’d adore to see a various done in granite!
