Project Description

This project can be divided into three phases. The first phase is the experiment, I have conducted several experiments around the curing method of light-curing material, including forming base, way of irradiation and structure shape.Then going to the element phase, I chose optical fibre and UV resin as my universal element to create the assembly unit, which can be assembled into the array to fit any kinds of surface.In the final embodiment phase, the chair just is one of the embodiments of my concept. The feature of the chair is can "take the permanent snapshot" of the first touch, your body imprint will be remained permanently.
