‘dodecahedronic chair’ by hiroaki suzuki
japanese design student 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.
