This 3D-printed chaise lounge has been designed by research student Arwin Hidding and teammate Henriette Bier at the Delft University of Technology as a stylishly functional piece of furniture for the modern home.
As mentioned, the chair is manufactured using 3D printing technologies, which makes the furniture piece more flexible and sturdy thanks to the modern material used to create it (thermoplastic elastomers). This malleable aesthetic enables sitters to adjust the shape and function of the chair to make it perfect for relaxing or even sleeping, if required or desired.
The 3D-printed chaise lounge was explained by Hidding who said, "The aim of the project was to develop a 3D printable pattern that would allow control over the stiffness over the material. Variable stiffness is employed in this project as an adaptation strategy to achieve multi-functionality."
