Competition Brief : Design a chair with recycled cardboard that can support the weight of an adult.
Role: The idea was to explore the load bearing characteristics of packaged cardboard and build a design that had the structural integrity to support the weight of an adult. Study of origami folding methods and three dimensional truss systems led to the development of the pyramidical structure which was iteratively prototyped
to create the optimal design for the seat.
Process: Analysis of design brief, research into cardboard packaging, ideation sketches, prototyping in cardboard, SolidWorks model of Seat, Full scale prototype in double layered corrugated cardboard.
Deliverable: Full Scale Cardboard Seat Prototype
Duration: 2 Weeks
