RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The main research was about the shape. It was simulated physically and then tested. Strength analysis were also applied using Finite element method (FEA).

CHALLENGE:
The hardest part was to decide which mechanism to use for changing the armchair pattern (moving the elements). Sliding elements was the most complicated method. Previous versions of the chair was based on attaching the soft parts to the back using magnets or Velcro.
