Möbius table leg

Parametric 3d modeling



Year: 2015



The inspiration for Möbius table leg came from early 20th century furniture pieces by Marcel Breuer in which a single element shapes the overall design.

Möbius was an attempt to implement simple forms using a contemporary method of parametric design that minimizes random forms generated by computer. The initial algorithm was designed to fold a signle surface through a set height with dynamic parameters. The form later evolved to pair with another for increased structural strength.

The hardwood prototype is crafted from 6 different components using a 4-axis CNC machine.

INITIAL 3D PRINTED PROTOYPES

FIRST REAL SCALE PROTOTYPE
4-axis CNC milled styrofoam

The challenge is to solve the structural problem at the knee
