Femur Stool

First exhibited at the London Design Museum in 2013, this project is based on an algorithm that removes any redundant material according to the stress zones on the object’s surface.

An optimization process allows us to constrain the amount of material used to achieve a light and economical form. Produced by laser sintering, we managed to achieve a faster production time and save material and energy by reducing laser mileage.

This object’s shape is inspired by the human femur bone structure and provides support optimized for 120 kg. If you change the sitting load, the object’s form will adjust to accommodate and enhance its performance.

The Femur Stool is part of the permanent collection at the Design Museum in London.
