1:1 Sitting Machines

The last couple of days/last week I’ve been working on my sitting machine for this semester project. Through my questionnaires, registrations and process I’ve become more and more certain that my main focus is on a lounge chair type for my outdoor furniture.

The sitting machine is a tool I’ve used previously with a project for a dining chair. It’s basically a simplified adjustable chair – made from MDF and threaded rod and bolts.

The machine allows the designer to easily and quickly try out many different dimensions, angles, heights and sizes for the seat and back. The simplified aspects ensure that the sitting machine works as a design tool and does not set up specific design parameters.

I’m already thinking about improvements for next semesters sitting machine. If I can change the sides from MDF into clear acrylic it will be even better for video/photo registrations of how the body follows different setups.
