2021 Tennis in the Land Umpire Chairs

Tennis court with umpire chair

The 2021 Tennis in the Land event was held in Cleveland for the first time in the event's history. Cleveland Institute of Art student Thomas Vinci designed and fabricated the umpire chairs for the event in think[box]. Thomas designed with the needs of umpires during a match in mind, making the chairs easier to climb and adding additional storage. After modeling the chairs in virtual reality, Thomas constructed the chairs using the fabrication equipment available on Floor 4.
