Virgin Atlantic JFK Clubhouse Furniture; Situ Fabrication
This project was completed while working for SITU Fabrication in Brooklyn, New York. SITU was hired to engineer and fabricate two couches for the Virgin Atlantic JFK Clubhouse designed by Slade Architecture. SITU was responsible for all fabrication with the exception of upholstery. The two couches take on an egg-like form and are designed such that the seat pods are removable for re-upholstery. Design by Slade Architecture.
My role in the project included engineering and full documentation of the fabrication drawings and processes. The structure of the couches was engineered to be a radial waffle structure that provided varying degrees of structure where needed. Using Grasshopper I was able to streamline the design process, generate cut sheets and fabrication documentation. This allowed me to take the project through prototype phase in a very short period of time.
