DRAGONFLY

 

Appropriately named ‘dragonfly’, the design of the chair was derived from observations made on dragonflies, whose bodies are characterized by an imbalance in weight distribution between the front legs and their extended tail. From this formal suggestion, biomimicry influences an idea of a cantilevered seat – a chair with four legs joined on the front, and a seating surface that seems to cheat the force of gravity like an overhang. The engineering process has led to a U-shaped hidden element under the seat that increases the structural integrity. the dynamism of ‘dragonfly chair’ is exalted by characterizing the back of the injection-molded polypropylene shell with ribs that explicitly references the automotive industry.
