FOC was commissioned by a Dutch design company, Wetzels Brown Partners to co-develop the creation of 23 unique chairs for a 100 ft. sailing yacht and private residence.
The chair structure is inspired on Janne Kyttanen's Macedonia tray, the 3D printed outer shell is manufactured in a single piece. Only one shell can be fitted into the state of the art 3D printing machines, thereby making this the one of the largest single pieces ever to be produced with Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) by Freedom Of Creation.
The rapid manufactured shell is seamlessly connected to a high gloss finished metal base, which allows the chair to swivel freely. The cutting edge outer structure is combined with a traditional high quality padded leather shell which can easily be popped in and out of the chair structure.
To create a nice contrast between the soft leather and hard outer structure, a high gloss finish was applied to the nylon structure.
