A structure or assembly is hyperstatic when you can support one constrain on a node without losing the overall balance.
The thinness of the frame is here to illustrate the optimization work that has been done to get this level of rigidity within the structure.
This results in a very light weight chair, quite transparent with a captivating geometry.
The brass nodes are 3D printed, hyperstat has been designed as a system and will be D.V.EP under various forms: lamps, tables, folding screens, etc…
One can notice the two different diameters of tubes used in the structure, the larger ones are in compression whereas the thinnest ones in tension. This wiser use of matter further enhances the structural optimization and makes visible.
Using the same system D.V.EP for the Hyperstat Chair, the couch is spanning on a larger dimension offering a comfortable surface to sit.
This generous surface displays sculptural facets underlined by the sewing lines.
The Hyperstat system allows the user to buy the furniture in kits and assemble it himself two.
The couches are available: editions
The crisis: in fabric to self-assemble with raw brass structure.
The deluxe edition: fully assembled in leather with gold plated connectors and structure.
The couch is quite unique and marks a particular dime in design history thanks to its use of computer generated design and metal 3D printing.
