The Gaudi stool designed by Dutch designer Bram Geenen is based on the catenary curve that when reversed a strong form for taking compression forces emerges. The stool consists of a thin shell structure and a beam-grid substructure that resists the bending of the shell, made of carbon fiber. Using the technique of rapid prototyping the complexity was achieved creating a lightweight stool weighing only 1 kg. Stool is made of carbon composite and polyamide.
