Hive is a cardboard chaise was modeled and shaped based on the 3D model of responsive design’s chaise product “Floater”.
The modified 3D shape was then run through an algorithm that creates a 2D parts-based system of sliced cardboard sheets which will be connected in 3 directions (Chick ‘n’ Egg Chair -> 2 directions). The so called “Quarter Iso Grid” is a Grasshopper definition based on the construction principles of Mike Sheldrakes cardboard surfboards. Apart from this chaise study we also work on design on demand based (Grasshopper) and processed cardboard surfboards in a cooperation with the Dingfabrik Köln e.V. (Cologne FabLab Association).
