Mike Voropaev – AXIS lounger


AXIS Lounger — a rethinking of modern luxury. Sophisticated futuristic forms of the base combined with the elegance of pillows made of genuine leather and specially balanced aluminium legs allow you to enjoy the excellent comfort. Minimalistic design will fit into any interior in a modern style, and a lot of textures and materials available allow to customize AXIS lounger to your taste. Inspiration I was inspired by military aircraft and automobiles. I wanted to create something unusual and futuristic combining nonclassical approaches and, at the same time, luxury and comfort. Original orange leather of AXIS lounger inspired by indian orange lining of a MA-1 bomber jackets.


Idea The idea was to create indoor rocking lounger for contemporary interiors with futuristic touch. In legs I used an unusual approach — five unibody legs forming an arc. AXIS lounger designed in such way that the center of mass in the human supine position falls in the middle of sofa, at the same time excluding the possibility of turning with rocking with any force.Modelling To model the base of the sofa I used Rhinoceros, for cushion — 3Ds Max and ZBrush. All renders made with Corona Renderer and HDR Light Studio. Postproduction in Adobe Photoshop CC 2015. Visualisation Here are some studio shots.
