Both designers have worked with experts from the Audi Lightweight Design Center to develop the R18 Ultra Chair, named after and inspired by the car prototype lightweight Audi race. They started with the technology, engineers have used the R18 car and transferred them in a cabinet.
Lightweight design chair made robots
Earlier this year, they performed a public beta test for R18 Ultra chair where hundreds of visitors to the Salone del Mobile in Milan fair sensors were sitting on the chair with the stress analysis. It is such a process, as in the testing and development of a race car. Sitting is a very dynamic and very strange activity, because everyone uses the seat.
Using data from the public beta testing, the designers omitted any unnecessary weight of the carbon fiber structure. This is completely different from all other molds furniture or if it has a continuous wall thickness and the continuing importance. You can manipulate not only the level but also the material.
