Abstract

The well-known chairs designed by Gerrit Rietveld at the beginning of the XX century, the Berlin and Red Blue Chairs, were part of an academic investigation within the framework of an Industrial design bachelor course. In order to better involve the young students of the first year, a gaming experience has been conceived by means of thoughtful activities (documentation / design) and shape analyses. The methodology had the effect of spurring the students to develop a drastic transformation of the chair: the objects become components able to activate new design skills by imagination and creativeness.
