The “Generico chair” is a new kind of furniture created by the German designers Marco Hemmerling and Ulrich Nether, based on generative and additive manufacturing technologies by following the parametric method in design, using FEM-software to create the 3D computer model. The concept of iterative in design reduced parts of the volume, but the product still held comfort and all functional requirements.
