After presenting My First Chair project, geting a patent for it, and in the mean time applying and getting into an MA and a job, I delayed my First Chair Project's presentation to you, and to the www.
But, as I previously stated, this is the time -when i ve got time- to share.
So first thing first.
The proposed system can change its shape from an open to a closed configuration. It consists of a set of five seats, which can deploy and retract synchronously in a straight line. Thus, the need for lifting individual seats, or seat packages and the need to use additional straightening tools, are eliminated. At the same time, the system helps diminish the time needed for the transition process. It is also considered to importantly diminish the employees’ mental and physical strain.
The longevity of the product is increased by the replaceability of wearing parts. All the system can be fully disassembled, and thus fully replaced. Steel and polyamide components can be 100% recycled. Polyurethane foam can be used thermally to generate energy or can be crushed and recycled as a composite.
Below follows the full version of my final year project presentation, as promised:
