Aluminum Chair by Ransmeier

Updated: Dec 8, 2019

Produced for the U-JOINTS exhibition curated by Aniina Koivu and Andrea Caputo during the Salone Del Mobile in Milan, 2018. This workshop prototype demonstrates a flexible composite joint. The carbon fiber provides an elastic suspension by connecting two aluminum panels. When sat upon, the composite bends around the metal base. The chair tilts backward by pivoting near the front of the seat.
