Vento Seating System by Vir Karamchandani

Home > Winners > #39285


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Vento

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Seating System

INSPIRATION:
The project was inspired by visions of the future. How can furniture and seating systems be taken to the next level.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A contemporary concept that has been designed with a minimalist approach. Vento, features a semi-flexible Aluminium frame, which makes the structure durable and robust. The ergonomic seat and back is detailed with a micro-grooved pattern which is inspired by the wind. This detail acts as a design element and visually emphasises the compound surfaces (thereby enhancing cognitive ergonomics).

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Interacting with seats is intuitive. Firstly, in terms of cognitive ergonomics, the seat appears to be inviting and secure. Secondly and more importantly, in terms of physical ergonomics the seat and back feature compound curves that gently hug the body when seated. The semi-flexible aluminium frame adjusts to take the load of the user. Thirdly, 'Vento' adds that "something special" or a sculptural value to the space that it is placed in.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Project Duration - 1 month (September 2014)

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Kindly note these are proposed materials and processes. The seat and back can be manufactured by Injection Moulding Plastic (PP) and finished with a Soft Feel Poly urethane coat. The structure can be built using Aluminium, Die Cast for the connector and bent sheet for the structure. *By strategically separating the seat and back, manufacturing freedom is achieved in terms of surface movement and thickness.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Overall Seat Dimensions (in mm) - 510 x 655 x 975 Distance between each seat (in mm) - 330 Properties - The detachable base has a solid cross-section. This makes the structure heavy, thereby making the seating system stable and topple-proof.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
A combination of Desk and Field Research was conducted for this project. The methodologies were varied. Primary desk research included finalizing materials and manufacturing processes. Collecting and analysing anthropometric data. Field Research included, visits to a few factories to see the manufacturing process and also to see the types of finishes available for the selected material. It was also important to visit several popular furniture showrooms to realize the current trends.

CHALLENGE:
The challenging part about creating this project was to match my ambitions and my vision for the future of furniture. Not only to ensure the user's mental and physical comfort but also to visually add value to a space. It was particularly difficult to create the organic 3D Pattern, which is seen on the back and seat (which is a key element). It was also time consuming to rethink and re-imagine the structure of the seating system. The concept is futuristic and perfectly realizable.
