A high-tech chair by Matt Antes and Cullan Kerner

The project is called Chair1 and consists of a seat made with a combination of new technologies and recycled plastic.

Matt Antes and Cullan Kerner are two young graduates from Virginia Tech University (USA) who recently made a PETG seat using recycled plastic. The Chair1 manufacturing process involves a combination of technologies such as virtual reality, robotic automation and additive manufacturing that undoubtedly make us pondering on what the design scenarios may be in the future and on the possibilities that will be offered to new design students in terms of design and execution of their projects.

Chair1 was made in separate parts which were subsequently assembled by pressure, whilst the seat and the backrest were CNC manifactured from solid wood and inserted directly into the seat skeleton. With Chair 1 Ante and Kerner are presenting themselves to the public for the first time as a duo capable of designing furniture embedded with technology and sustainability.
