A printable version of our earlier Gaudi Stool. We developed the Gaudi Stool in 2009. It consists of a 3d-printed part and a part made of carbon-fiber, which together with the strong 'Gaudi' shape makes it possible to create a 1kg stool.
Now we've made a first attempt to create a printed-only version of the stool. The structure is condensed to gain strenght and seating comfort. The model shown here is a 1:2 scale-model.
about the Gaudi Stool; The shape of the Gaudi Stool was created in the same way that Antoní Gaudi designed the structure of his churches, by making a model of hanging chains, so letting gravity determine the strongest and most logical shape for withstanding forces. High-end techniques and materials were used to be able to apply Gaudi's methods in lightweight furniture.
