Beast, a prototype for a chaise lounge, is an organic-like entity consisting of eight different materials that were 3D printed in one run. The single continuous surface, acting both as structure and as skin, is locally modulated for both structural support and corporeal aid. Beast combines structural, environmental, and corporeal performance by adapting its thickness, pattern density, stiffness, flexibility, and translucency to the sitter’s load, curvature, and skin-pressured areas respectively.
