Fully Parametric Chair
:: Vectorial Body ::
The contour of the Body Chair is inspired by ONL's design for the Space Xperience Centre in Curacao, which is the terminal building from where the space travels of XCOR will be launched. The Body Chair is assembled by joining together simple components as to form the volume.
:: Components ::
Based on a fully parametric system of connected triangular components, any shape for any chair can be built. The first design applying this design strategy is the Body Chair. The lasercut components are joined together, riveted where aluminium meets another aluminium piece, bolted where aluminium meets a wooden piece. They fit together like unique pieces of a complex puzzle.
:: Design app ::
In the further development of the chair we will open up the design process via a tablet app to the potential consumers, who will be involved in the open design game as co-designers. Their unique proportions - limited within ergonomic constraints will be produced and assembled on command.
