Rotationally Moulded Chair
Rotationally Moulded Chair
You are to design a chair that is suitable for production as a rotational moulding and should not exceed an enclosed volume of 1m3. Other than this the brief is entirely open although you should consider the following:

Ergonomics – Does your design fit the target market? (As defined by you)
Aesthetics – Does the design have an appropriate visual language?
Tactility – Does the chair feel right? Especially in skin contact areas.
Stability – Given the production process, will the design feel secure in use?
Strength – Will the design support a 95th %ile user from the target market?

Remember that the target production method is rotational moulding, you will be given the opportunity to visit a production facility to familiarise yourself with this process.

Supplied with a maximum of 9m of standard ¾” x 18swg mild steel tube, you are to design a seating solution for a self chosen scenario that employs this material as the structural element. You may also use other materials to finish the product and to provide appropriately comfortable seating but the steel tube component must be visually evident.

The resulting design must be capable of accommodating 90% of the UK adult population.
