The Generico Chair is a sculptural seating solution that looks like more of a work of art than a place to sit, but has been expertly designed with the help of technology to make it perfectly suited to sitting needs.
The chair was designed with the use of generative algorithms that allow the chair to retain its structural integrity and provide the same level of support as traditional seats, but with dramatically less heft. This means that the ergonomic seat has been whittled away at from a solid block to make it appear skeletal and stylish without the loss of any support.
The Generico Chair is the design work of Marco Hemmerling and Ulrich Nether, and has been 3D printed to eliminate the need for overly complex manual manufacturing methods.
The Generico Chair Cuts Down on the Need for Structural Heft
1. Algorithm-designed Seating - The use of generative algorithms in designing seating solutions presents disruptive innovation opportunities to create lightweight yet structurally sound chairs.
2. 3D Printing in Furniture Manufacturing - The application of 3D printing technology in the production of chairs eliminates the need for complex manual manufacturing, opening up opportunities for on-demand and customized furniture.
3. Ergonomic and Stylish Design - Combining aesthetics and functionality, the trend of creating sculptural seating solutions with skeletal and stylish appearances provides opportunities for innovative seating designs.
1. Furniture Manufacturing - The furniture manufacturing industry can leverage algorithm-designed seating and 3D printing to streamline production processes and create unique, lightweight products.
2. Interior Design - Interior designers can explore the use of algorithm-designed seating solutions to create visually appealing spaces while prioritizing comfort and ergonomics.
