The geometry of the chaise longue is generated to accommodate an average human body size and weight, either sitting or reclining. The user automatically changes the shape to suit either sitting or reclining by deforming the back part of the chaise longue by leaning against it. The weight of the user triggers the shape change, which is achieved by combining variation in material distribution with the use of thermoplastic elastomers (TPE). Watch the video to find out more.
