Gaudi chair

Dutch designer Bram Geenen created the Gaudi chair as a follow-up of his Gaudi stool.

Like the Gaudi stool, the Gaudi chair is developed by using the same methods (models of hanging chains) as Antoni Gaudi used to find the strongest shape for his impressive churches.

The construction of the chair is compared with the stool a bit more complicated due to the forces in the chairs backrest. That is why Geenen combined the chain models with a software script to determine a 3D printed structure of nylon ribs to distribute the forces of the backrest across the chair. The structure is covered by a thin shell of carbon fiber.
