Folded chair

Year: 2015

Status: Prototype in process

The chair is the result of some material performance researches of our studio. The main idea is to minimize needed amount of material via morphological features. The old approach in architecture to fold the surface in order to bear loads we’ve implemented in a field of industrial design in more elegant way. Due this approach it is possible to reach double reduction of plastic material that is usually required for analog chairs.

The design takes in account required ergonomics. The folds avoid places where human body should touch the surface as a back and the seat of the chair. On the sides folds create armrests. Remaining surfaces are fullfilled with folds evenly in orded to bear men's weight.
