The shape of FALT was inspired by origami techniques and makes the construction appear simple despite its complexity. The FALT principle originated from a university project. The task was to create a chair out of cardboard that could support a person and did not require the use of glue or other aids.
The further development of this folding technique made it possible to produce a stable chair from a single piece of sheet material. The chair can be folded from standardized metal sheets, which allows for hardly any waste and low material costs.
A single bolt with nut as a connection at the back of the chair guarantees full stability and torsional rigidity. The materials used were steel, stainless steel and aluminum.
In collaboration with the metal construction company Felder Metall from Andelsbuch, Austria, the chair was finally implemented and submitted to the craft and design competition Handwerk+Form in Bregenzerwald, where it was finally exhibited.
The chair was developed in a team together with Moritz Keller, Max Heydenreich and Niklas Schmidt.
