A Chair's Visual Diary

Have interaction data alter a chair design.

Numerical data from how users interact a kitchen stool in a living space is utilised to parametrically alter a chair’s CAD model. The models are then 3D printed, as a study into how can data technology can be incorporated into the furniture design process.


This project serves as a reflection from my work placement of creating miniature chairs. How can designing or making furniture objects be further innovated through advances in digital technology?

Chair models from day 1 across an 8-day trial run.
