Designed using our award-winning research, the “Twisted” scupltural stool combines computer design, engineering technology, digital fabrication technology and handmade finishing to create a new form with an elegant geometry. It can be rotated into eleven different positions, and can be used as a side-table, bookshelf or chair.
We have developed a novel and innovate algorithm that allows us to calculate not only the specific three-dimensional angles in which all the planar components intersect, but also the correct positions for the geometry to form a self-supporting structure. The three-dimensional design of the stool results from the combination of geometry, material structure, thickness, fabrication and assemblage. The stool has been digitally fabricated by using a 5 axis CNC Milling machine robot. Once the stool has been assembled, it becomes self-supporting. The result is a 17 mm timber technology structure that supports up to 70 times its own weight.
