I wanted to design something for Shapeways and why not give kudos to the great designs of Ray and Charles Eames in the process.
 The 3D model was based off of Andrew Lowe's incredible rendition of the chair he posted on a open 3D database. The upholstery textures where unlike any other models I had seen.
 At 1:24 scale, I had to thicken thin areas of the chair to allow for 3D printing without compromising the proportions of the chair.
 The design got some traction on the internet and was featured on Tumblr's front page, which was really exciting.
