A design principle referring to the origin
The main design idea of the multidirectional layer arrangement was to show an oversized view of how the Maezio™ material is produced in small scale. Endless, filmy fibers are set up parallel next to each other and covered with polycarbonate. In a further processing step the resulting two-dimensional tapes are placed on top of each other in different directions and pressed into sheets. With special tools these sheets are thermoformed into the three components of the chair.
They represent the three directions of mechanical construction. Their orthogonal arrangement provides the necessary stability. The goal was to generate maximum load capacity with minimal material thickness.
Since the material has been left in its raw condition, the orientation of the fibers are visible, so that the entanglement of the fiber directions refer directly to the origin of the material.
