Geckeler Michels Uses Computer Technology to Develop 'Fragment'

Geckeler Michels has designed a chair that has a monobloc structure, and was made using computer simulations. "With the help of experienced mould makers, the concept is formed with two primary components: a seat shell, the structural core of the seating object, and the funnel, inlets and feeder – which rather than being cut off, have been re-purposed to serve as the three legs," according to DesignBoom.

The underside of the chair is ribbed in texture, and when looking at the chair from behind it almost looks as if the front legs have two feet attached. The chair is made from aluminum so it is quite durable, and it has a green coloring. 'Fragment' is the name of the design, which is slightly ironic due to its blocked structure.
