Sylki Chair    
Worked on at POD Design
 
The Sylki Chair is a unique chair made from a single sheet of 20 gauge steel that is cut and welded together.  It weighs no more than a bottle of wine, yet it can support over 250 lbs of weight.  I was the technical designer for this chair and worked out issues such as structural support and load bearing capabilities as well as material choice and ergonomics.  I met with custom metal worker Jeff Swift and together we worked out all of the technicalities that allowed this chair to go from a one-of-a-kind paper model to a fully functional piece of furniture.  (Photographs were taken and edited by me).
This is a structural analysis of the chair that confirms its strength.
