CASE STUDY

The “Canopy Chair” was designed specifically for young, sporty people who love adrenaline fuelled experiences and adventure. It is geared particularly towards couples whose hobbies include hiking, camping, outdoor barbeques or just relaxing at their vacation house during the summer time.

The basic principle in this concept is to provide a chair that can be easily assembled and subsequently suspended by carabiners and climbing / TRX rope to any fixed solid object at the desired height. The construction of the product includes nine carbon steel poles which click into place, and six 3-cornered joints with metal hooks to fasten the ropes. The sail, back support and seat base are made from canvas covered by waterproof neoprene textile.

THE PROJECT INCLUDED

A concept board, sketches, orthographic drawings, materials and joints, 3D renders, a mock-up
