The Knot chair project goes through the stability study, from algorithms to identify and optimize the partition of the mould in order to facilitate the piece’s extraction.
The chair is realized in one-piece shell of high performance rigid polyurethane developped by ILPO.
The seat’s performances are in close connection to this choice for the optimal distribution of forces.
The backrest rotation point placed under the seat improve the posture.
The one-piece shell dissipates the forces and spread on the body a diffuse pressure.
The steel structure contributes to improve ergonomics.
