Generico Chair

German designers Marco Hemmerling and Ulrich nether have produced the ‘generico chair’, a product based on generative and additive manufacturing technologies. the process for developing the form involved a detailed analysis of structural performance, material properties and ergonomic demands, as well as technology production parameters.

Following an iterative design strategy, a material layout calculation resulted in reducing parts of the volume, while still enabling the necessary stiffness, comfort and functional requirements to be met. a 3D computer model was reviewed using FEM-software, to measure deformation and stresses before all the findings were integrated into a final 3D model.
