Tensegrity or tensional integrity is a structural principle which uses tension or compression to create seemingly physics defying objects. With this DXF file you will get the know-how to make a wooden chair/stool. This can be the starting point for new interesting woodworking projects involving tensegrity in a practical way. Sometimes this type of project is called floating compression and it’s no wonder why. It allowed for the creation of this AWESOME floating chair!
When we first saw other similar projects we KNEW that we needed to figure out how to make our own floating furniture and the reaction from others was Amazing. Everyone was amazed by the floating chair and they could not believe how it was being held up and together by just rope.
The good news is that it isn’t that hard to cut out and put together. All you need is some plywood and some rope. We used a CNC to cut out the parts, sanded the rough edges and then it was just a matter of putting it together. You too can make a Floating Chair at home!
The design can be cut on 600 x 900 mm (2 x 3 ft) CNC router and bigger.
