INSPIRATION

All started with an experience of being rescued from a fall caused fracture

I was impressed by this interesting arm cross figure used to transport victims, which reminds me of the mortise-tenon structure applied in traditional Chinese wooden furniture and buildings,

Unlike other transferring ways relying on surrounding objects, this smart supporting method with stable mechanical properties, is formed independently by just inserting and overlapping arms.

It is similar to the mortise-tenon connection used in wooden structures. Without glue and iron nails, wood components can be firmly assembled together by inlaying each other. All the freedom degrees of individual parts are limited, so as to construct a stable load-bearing structure.

So, I was inspired to evolve this arm gesture into a new type of wooden mortise-tenon structure, and apply it to a chair design.

IDEATION

Evolve this human posture to a furniture form

Make it stabler to bear weight on the ground

Attach four legs to the core, develop it into a centrosymmetric structure
