Cone Chair

Cone Chair was the culmination of thesis prep.  This chair was designed using grasshopper and rhino with a large consideration given to the creation process.  The mold making process utilized robotic foam cutting technology to create the mold which was poured using a GFRC mix.

Parametric Modelling

The design utilized grasshopper in order to easily change design elements while achieving our main goals of maintaining a reasonable weight, while creating an elegant design.

Mold Making Process

The mold creation process involved the use of a 7 axis Kuka Robot to cut blocks of EPS foam.  There were 7 robotic cuts to create a 6 part foam mold. This mold was then coated with a sealing agent and sandwiched between CNC cut plywood boards.
