Product Description

TrussFab Bottle Chair is made of 36 recycled refillable bottles and 8 3D printed connector hubs.

TrussFab is an integrated end-to-end system that allows users to fabricate large scale structures that are sturdy enough to carry human weight. TrussFab achieves the large scale by complementing 3D print with plastic bottles. It does not use these bottles as “bricks” though, but as beams that form structurally sound node-link structures, also known as trusses, allowing it to handle the forces resulting from scale and load. TrussFab embodies the required engineering knowledge, allowing non-engineers to design such structures and to validate their design using integrated structural analysis. We have used TrussFab to design and fabricate tables and chairs, a 2.5 m long bridge strong enough to carry a human, a functional boat that seats two, and a 5 m diameter dome.

Hint for assembly: The chair is built from the combination of 0.5l and 1l bottles which are combined by their bottom with tape or screw. The individual bottle size is not very important but the ratio between the small and a big bottles should be roughly 1:1.3. If you use soft bottles, you can inflate them to achieve better stability. In this case their bottom needs to be taped together, not screwd. According the type of the bottle you are using you will need the corresponding connecting cuffs (find in the shop).
