Modular Garden Seating Set
For my HSC project I have chosen to make a modular garden seating set. Currently we have limited amount of seating at home in the garden and we find it hard to locate somewhere to sit. The plan with this garden setting was to add another element to the garden that can create a quite space outside for people to relax. My parents had been looking for another feature to add to the garden and I have decided to make a new element that can have multiple purposes.
My finished outdoor table is going to be placed underneath the Chinese elm tree in the garden. I have chosen this area as this tree provides the most shade in the garden with plenty space for the setting to not interfere with anything else around it.
I enjoyed using metal and wood for my projects and decided to incorporate both material into the project. With this project, I used metal for the majority of the project with wooden planks for the seats of the benches. During the research stage I changed the design of my modular garden seating bench to have a picnic table in the centre of the seat. This allowed me to be more creative with my design and have more function for the project. With this change in design, it opened up extra design features for the future by adding extra features to the table top.
