This would be great with glass over it, used as a desk. Make a full cubic case, hinge the glass, light it, desk.
I am very jealous of the folks that got to design this, and those that live in it. If you follow back to the source, you can see that they have also posted the floor plan. So you can bet that my own rendering of this structure will be popping up on this blog very soon!
There are some problems with this version of the official floor plan, versus what we see of the exterior. And I would change some more things if it was my home. (Changes which I may eventually publish here)
Overall, this is very rough, nothing has any real depth to it. But it’s a great starting point for actually planning this as a real residence! This could be my country home, so long as I also had something in a city… I need an escape from each, from time to time.
The Stuck chair gets its name from the visual trickery created by its unique construction of pieces that seem to “stick” in place. The form was achieved by deconstructing the archetypical chair and rearranging components to appear as though they are attached by an unseen gravitational force.

So, remember kids, you can get a degree and learn a skill at the same time! One can back up the other! And certainly don’t look down on that plumber or electrician simply because they don’t have a $50K sheepskin. You should never be above sweating. It’s good for you. (As long as you hydrate, too)
Knowledge never stops being power, even, or perhaps most especially so, if it’s powered by your own two hands.
