title Aerochair - Integrative design methodologies for lightweight carbon fiber furniture design
source Sousa, JP, Xavier, JP and Castro Henriques, G (eds.), Architecture in the Age of the 4th Industrial Revolution - Proceedings of the 37th eCAADe and 23rd SIGraDi Conference - Volume 1, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal, 11-13 September 2019, pp. 691-700
summary Carbon fiber composites embody lightweight and strength and is a well-integrated material in various fields of engineering. In spite of its excellent material properties, it is not frequently found in architecture and design applications. In this project, the intention is to research how the material's most prominent qualities can be applied to create a lightweight furniture design. The furniture object was chosen as an example of a small architectural component with a structural capacity of holding a human body weight between 60-90 Kg. In particular, carbon fiber composites display an impressive tensile strength, and with the aim of exploring this feature, a case-study of a full-scale, hanging carbon chair was conducted. To develop a design, optimize it and realize it, an integrated design and fabrication process was developed. It combined material research, computational design, and a novel fabrication method for filament materials.
