October 17, 2018: POLY PROTOTYPE - SIDE TABLE / SEATING

Inspired by the continual geometric trend, we wanted to create a piece of furniture which encompassed the complexity of geometrical shapes working together but also achieve a clean, uncluttered looking piece of furniture. Following a little research, we discovered the shape family of Polyhedrons – simply meaning a solid figure with many plane faces, typically more than six.

You may have guessed where the idea for the name came from!

As part of our design development and to assess the structural feasibility, we printed 1:10 scale 3D models of potential designs before proceeding with Poly.

The eight components were cut and four of them were glued together and held in place using a jig. This ensured there was no movement occurring when gluing up and fixing the clamps in place. This process was then repeated for the other half.

Glued


In order to glue the two parts together, an opening was cut into a sheet on a bench to provide stability. After the glue had dried, all it needed was a sanding down and our Poly was complete.

As you can see, as well as looking great indoors, this product is ideal for outside as a side table or occasional seating as its durable, non-porous and very low maintenance.
