Wassily chair

I’ve been (re)visiting the Bauhaus era for a project I’m working on at the moment and was in urgent need of a highly detailed Wassily chair. There are many versions of this chair around on model marketplaces but, strangely enough, none with the kind of detail I was after. So I took a day during my break last month and did one I could live with.

As usual, you’ll find the model and textures (including a versatile fingerprint map for the metal) in the store.

  1. Impressive as always !!
    Hope i need this chair one day to buy it !!
    Great detail and materials !!

    I Love the metal mat. and the fingerprints on it… Would love to see the reflection maps u used to achieve that!

  3. Bertrand you are an inspiration .. those finger prints make it looks so real!

    I am planning on doing some furniture soon when I get some free time…
    Really appreciate your modelling skills also…

  4. Not bad, especially i like the work around the screws. All done in 3ds? Best regards, Simon.

    Hi Simon. Yes, this bit is all 3d.

    Just want to say love your work.
    I have a few decent size projects I am interested having you work on.
    Do you have an email to contact you at?

    Do you by any chance produce tutorial videos? I am a noobie in this 3d world. I would love to get to know the details of your workflow step by step. I am using Modo currently. So I am not sure if the setup is going to be the same.

    Hi there, not I haven’t done any video tutorial so far. Maybe I will. But if you have any specific question, feel free to ask.

    I read somewhere that you predominantly use Blender for modelling and then VRay for rendering. Is this true?

    Hi Komengsky,
    Sorry for the delay in responding. I did use Blender for a long time, but now I use primarily 3ds Max and Vray. I still fire up Blender regularly as I love to use its compositor.

    Hi Bertrandt,
    truly inspiring detail, would love to see some wire-frames (just to make sure they aren’t the real thing :P).
    Anything you can say about how you did the stitching so well would be appreciated too.

    je me permet de parler en français, car je cois que tu es français et que je parle assez mal anglais.
    j’aimerais savoir comment tu as eu un tel rendu de chrome, (les petites imperfections raillures salissure) as tu utiliser un map de bump ou de glossy? ou autre?

  5. Salut Baptiste. J’ai utilisé une map glossy. Pas de bump. Le set-up est très simple. Si tu télécharge mon materiel ballon pour Vray, cette map est fournie avec.
