Struktur.Form[t].Produkt. / bionic furniture


The findings based on the biomimetics research were transferred to the Rhombus chair and the Rhombus table.

The Rhombus chair takes up the flexible parallelogram basic structure of the banana-longitudinal section in its seat surface. By the applied, variable pressure of a
seated person, the rhombus-
structure flattens and thus enables a material reduced, flexible and
ergonomic seating.

The Rhombus table edge, which
is flexible due to its structure
movement also results from the structural knowledge of the
banana plant.

It bends and fits perfectly to the moving arm position of its user.
