Sit.1

Date: 2015
Status: Research
Design Team: Nada Abu Shaqra

Sit.1 investigates the potential of utilizing computational design methodologies to question and transform normative everyday objects such as a stool into a condition that responds to the conceptual and material weight brought about by the act of sitting. The constructs purposely leap beyond structure and function to produce volumes of excess.

Sit.1 responds to the heaviness of sitting through a topological transformation from volume to line that articulate differently according to a body-stool-ground interface.

Sit.1 was supported by an American University of Sharjah: Faculty Research Grant awarded to co-founder Faysal Tabbarah
