A Physical Chair that Defies the Laws of Physics
Danielle Connelly, an architect, and Sarah Templin, a textile designer, collaborated to capitalize on their expertise, combining the most soft and feminine qualities of textiles with the structural and formal qualities of architecture.
Made from just one single 1,000 meter long cotton string impregnated with soy-based resin, it's both load-bearing and lightweight. Its total weight is less than a kilo (merely 2.1 lbs).
We tinker all dang day. Which materials make the strongest composites? Basalt, kevlar, fiber glass, cotton? Which stitch, hook size, and fiber geometry creates the most structurally sound and lightweight material? Check out our material studies to see where we are now.
molding & form
How can we develop a mold with unique demolding capabilities to disguise the exit points of the molding rods and create interior voids which increased the strength of the chair? And how will that drive the final shape of our chair?
