rocking 2 gether chair 2.1

approach

this project initially started in 2011, generating digital 3D models. several 1:8 scale 3d printed models followed, refining the balance and rocking behaviour of the chair. the prototype 2.1 chair is made out of CNC milled birch plywood. the density and amount of the CNC milled ‘ribs’ can be controlled with differently sized wooden spacers, ergo controlling the visual connection between the person and his/her pet. the design process and final full scale prototype of the rocking-2-gether chair showcases the successful combination of digital modeling and digital fabrication.
