Enda Scott, Harmonograph Chair


In the short time since setting up his own workshop in 2012, Irish Designer Enda Scott has built a reputation for innovative pieces of contemporary furniture that demonstrate imagination in both their form and function. Scott’s meticulous bent wood technique shares a kinship with basket weaving or wicker, with bent wood supports interlaced to create a durable structure that appears delicate and graceful with a suggestion of perpetual movement. Scott’s first group of works for Todd Merrill Studio, titled The Harmonograph Collection, explore the relationship between sight and sound, its undulating lines representing a sound wave as it gradually contracts. Based on concepts found in “Harmonograph”, a visual guidebook to the mathematics of music, Scott’s works are a visual representation of a sound wave formed by two notes of different frequency, the fading of sound demonstrated by the wave as it gradually expands and contracts. Scott developed a CAD program based on the harmonograph to produce three dimensional models. Using these models as reference, the sofa, chairs, and table are then sculpted by hand, through a unique process of lamination. Given the complex nature of the curves involved, traditional methods of lamination through the use of a former was unfeasible, and free form lamination failed to provide sufficient control to maintain the integrity of his design. To fully articulate his singular vision, Scott devised a process of ‘semi-form’ lamination that would combines both traditional methods. Overall, the series provides an insight into the connection between sight and sound, a relationship where audible harmony produces visual symmetry.
