Starting with the basic form of a square lounge chair, a genetic algorithm was applied to gradually remove material then analyze the results. This process was repeated thousands of times until it converged on an ideal shape that satisfies the loading conditions.
This process is very similar to the way natural selection selects from millions of random genetic mutations to shape living things into an ideal form to suit a given set of conditions.
The resulting computer-derived shapes resemble organic forms like bones or trees. Originally designed for the Design After Dark | Amass event. Exhibited at Ventura Lambrate Milan 2016.
