DANDELION STOOL BY KUO TZO JUNG
FINAL GRASSHOPPER MODEL
Using the design drivers I set out in the first part of this assignment I built a parametric model of the stool in grasshopper.
The code allows for these manipulations
DESIGN DRIVER 1 – NUMBER OF PINS
RADIUS OF PIN HEAD
LENGHT OF PIN
From these design drivers I created 5 additional Dandelion Stool family members.
FAMILY MEMBER 1 – BALL STOOL
FAMILY MEMBER 2 – DANDELION IN THE WIND
FAMILY MEMBER 3 – SMALL PIN HEAD
FAMILY MEMBER 4 – BAR STOOL
FAMILY MEMBER 5 – LARGE CENTR SPHERE
For the parametric seating project, I used Marc Newson’s wooden chair for Cappellini as my parent:I started by using the surface model I had made in Rhino and referencing it into Grasshopper (I later built two alternate surface models and also referenced them into Grasshopper).
From there I made 4 blocks of code. 1 for the ribs, 1 for the base, and 2 for the horizontal supports:
Below are images of my final Grasshopper model:
While building my Grasshopper model, I kept the following 4 design drivers in mind and make sure those elements remained parametric:
(this second GIF doesn’t work in preview, but click on the image above and it will open in a separate window and run correctly!)
Using the above design drivers, I created 5 variations to the original parent:
