Catenary Stool Prototype [2016], PLA and Paint

ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) Studio Winner, NYC, NY, 2016

This stool is designed with moldability in mind. The piece has draft and no undercuts, allowing it to be mass produced in a straight-pull mold. A hollow cavity reduces both the weight and material used without sacrificing structure.

Proposed manufacturing methods

  1. Gas Assist Injection Molding

  2. Rotation Molding
