FOLD Chair

FOLD is a sleek lounge chair with edge. Cut from steel, it is not only an exercise in geometry, but craft: utilizing specific folds to smooth edges and support forces, while leaving crisp lines and a sharp profile.

 

Task

Chair design & prototype fabrication.

  • Client

    Academic - Yale School of Architecture

Final Prototype.

The FOLD explores the process of design and fabrication in the development of a custom crafted chair towards a manufacturable prototype.

From iterations developed through a series of drawings and card models, to CNC and manual forming techniques in the steel workshop, FOLD brings form to functionality.

The following three videos show the development process from Design, Iteration, and Prototyping – taking the initial ideations and sketches through to physical models and full scale prototypes.
