I am creating a system to improve the design of furniture in regards to its relationship to the human body. I am employing 3d body scanning and digital fabrication technologies to create a form fitting chair, by customizing the manufacturing process to individual sitters. The development of the chair applies ergonomic, orthopedic and pain mediation studies, with external medical partnership to improve one’s posture, comfort or style.
