Aerochair Integrative design methodologies for lightweight carbon fiber furniture design

Aerochair Integrative design methodologies for lightweight carbon fiber furniture design

Estrada, Rebeca Duque; Wyller, Maria; Dahy, Hanaa;

Article:

Carbon fiber composites embody lightweight and strength and is awell-integrated material in various fields of engineering. In spite of its excellentmaterial properties, it is not frequently found in architecture and designapplications. In this project, the intention is to research how the material's mostprominent qualities can be applied to create a lightweight furniture design. Thefurniture object was chosen as an example of a small architectural componentwith a structural capacity of holding a human body weight between 60-90 Kg. Inparticular, carbon fiber composites display an impressive tensile strength, andwith the aim of exploring this feature, a case-study of a full-scale, hanging carbonchair was conducted. To develop a design, optimize it and realize it, an integrateddesign and fabrication process was developed. It combined material research,computational design, and a novel fabrication method for filament materials.
