Bringing the Avivo line to the marketplace involved a number of design research activities including human factors research, functionality testing through prototyping, physical testing, and solid modeling with finite element analysis to ensure quality, performance, and safety.
Challenges included the production possibilities of creating a cast aluminum chair with the added modularity of the seamless integration of a seat and back surface that allowed for pattern customization and substitution.
