The One_Shot. is a foldable stool, which is manufactured by selective laser sintering as one complete piece; the stool emerges from the machine in its final form, complete with hinges that are concealed by the graceful structure of the stool itself.
By virtue of gravity combined with a simple twist, an array of rods transforms, in one flowing movement, into a small, useful, strong seat.
The precision calculation of the angles of twisting and turning of the individual piece, have to be very precise in order to allow even weight distribution and stability.
