Modeling an Armchair in Cinema 4D by Subdivision Modeling

Konstantin Magnus walks through creating a chair by way of Subdivision Modeling techniques. Starting out by using a low polygon model as visual reference in the Cinema 4D Viewport, Konstantin walks through the subdivision modeling process and offers some tips and things to consider when using Subdivision Modeling techniques in C4D.
