As a stool Hychair supports everyone in his agile way of working between sitting and standing.
What is special about Hychair? It is a hybrid! Additive manufacturing meets a conventional component. Both seat and foot are constructed in a single continuous piece. Only additive manufacturing makes it possible to realize a geometry that encompasses all functional areas: In addition to its load-bearing structure and flexible top face, the mechanism for triggering the gas spring is integrated in the seat.
The foot provides a stable stand, at the same time the 3D hinge allows a precise movement on the Hychair in all directions. Designed for additive manufacturing, the functional areas are re-imagined in compliant flexible structures, without many individual parts as in conventional joints and mechanics.
Due to the functional integration, the manufactured parts can be used directly after production. Seat and foot are assembled with the gas spring, no tools needed – the Hychair is done!
