Aria Chair

Aria Chair is a sculptural chair designed for a client passionate about wood. SASI Studio has developed a design that takes in account the material behaviour and aims to express the extraordinary potential that wood has especially in the context of Industry 4.0. The project is the result of innovative design thinking inspired by the shapes of nature and traditional handmade chairs. The design process is enhanced by computational design tools to achieve a fluid design that optimize the structural behaviour of the chair removing non necessary material and creating openings that lighten the chair optimizing the material distribution. The design is characterized by continuous geometries that recall the forms found in nature. The alternation of convex and concave shapes creates plays of shadows that enhance the topological continuity and fluidity typical of shapes that have evolved according to natural optimization processes.
