How to go about designing an ergonomic chair? Answered


Greetings,

I have been unable to find a chair that is as comfortable as I want, and I would like to design my own. I want it fully support all parts of the body.

I am trying to figure out a system for making one. To figure out the shape I need to be able to sit in it and adjust it at any point from head to foot to see what is the most comfortable to find the perfect shape. I need to be able to raise, lower, move forward, and move back every inch of it.

Any ideas on how to do this? The best thing I can think of is a huge amount of clay.

Thanks

Greetings,

I should clarify that when I say
"I am trying to figure out a system for making one. To figure out the shape I need to be able to sit in it and adjust it at any point from head to foot to see what is the most comfortable to find the perfect shape. I need to be able to raise, lower, move forward, and move back every inch of it."

I am not describing the chair, but rather the design system used to create the shape from which I will make a mold to make the chair.

Thanks

Let Herman Miller show you how it's done, old school :-) Yes, there's a huge amount of clay involved.
