With a plastic resistant surface, the team Zaha Hadid Architects has created Kuki chair, a dynamic chair based or inspired in the Lorenz attractor, appearing to be in continuous motion.

The chair is presented as a three-dimensional object, sensory, as a set of surfaces which unite to form the ergonomic seating space. Several power lines are marked along the object, creating surfaces that open at certain times – achieving this way some form of dynamic movement – creating droplets, voids that convey more the feeling of sitting on a material in motion, almost transmuting. At the same time these lines engraved in the surface, give us a sense of structural sustainability.

In this chair design we can read the concepts of power lines, fluidity, dynamism, that characterizes the work and research of Zaha Hadid Architects and her team for all their projects. Driven by a continuous parametric search, we can notice the pursuit of Hadid to create non-static sensory objects.
