INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

This project embodies a distant future but which in turn may be near. Eldon Tyrell chair lives in 2077, an era in which natural resources such as wood have been depleted due to their irresponsible use. The conceptualization of the project arises from the film Blade Runner where only people with a lot of money can own said material. The chair was developed from pure scraps, it consists of 5 modules which are connected with rope type cord. The legs of each module are at different angles to give the sensation of movement, as if it wanted to escape from its owner.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Biomimicry is the science that studies nature to design systems, structures, processes and / or materials. The purpose of this project consists of the ability to recreate a movement and / or action of an animal of our choice. With this in mind, the animal that served as inspiration for the creation of this project is the Mantis Shrimp or Stomatopoda (scientific name). This marine animal has an extraordinary force that allows it to hit its prey with a force equivalent to a 22 caliber bullet. The recreation of this movement was carried out based on objects that we find at home. The materials used to build it were: Rubber bands, plasti-loca, a coat rack and a piece of wood.
