Bend Yourself a Seat

Eirik Helgesen
Maria Konstantopoulou

This workshop explored the use of aluminium as a material for making a seat. Students spent the morning understanding the principles of aluminium’s different forms (string, rod and sheet), as well as the basic structural principles involved in seat design. They then explored ideas and worked with scale drawings and models using wire. In the afternoon, the students used this knowledge and their scale models to create five aluminium seats out of aluminium rod and sheet. Finally, their work was exhibited at the Bartlett School of Architecture.
