Sustainable project in partnership with Decathlon's designers.
Group project with Zoé Fenouil & Julien Cormerais. The goal was to create a chair with a minimum of materials. The project was to think about eco-design and how to make everyday objects. Sitting is a need that we all have, we want to associate ourselves when we are tired, we want to eat etc... Sitting in the middle of nature in a camp, for example, allows us to carry out certain indispensable tasks.
Research on logical links to minimize the impact of manufacturing parts for the seat. Thinking about a minimum of parts and materials to maximize eco-design and thus the transport of this nomad seat.
Process

I sketched some different idea and I prototype a large range of connection with different material like fabrics or rope. I sewed the seat and the different connections that hold the pieces of wood together.

Here the different parts of the seat. This one is composed of a sewn solid base and specific attachments to be able to maintain the pieces of wood between them.
