Dodecahedronic Chair – Hiroaki Suzuki


Today we are changing it up and checking out Hiroaki Suzuki’s chair design derived from his research into geometric form in product design. Furniture design requires immense study into form and function, in this design each piece is carrying and dispersing the weight throughout the structure.  The designs geometric form gives both structural and aesthetic integrity.  Check it out after the jump! 

STUDENT: Hiroaki Suzuki

dodecahedronic02“Hiroaki Suzuki has been researching functional applications for polyhedral geometry in product design. The result is his ‘dodecahedronic chair’. for the design, suzuki carefully calculated each angle with 3D CAD software, verifying the overall structural strength and stability of the chair by producing models made of paper and corrugated cardboard. Though the seat looks rigid with its numerous hard planes, edges and vertexes, this is not telling of the comfort it brings to the sitter.”
