the AUDI 'R18 ultra chair' first made its debut as a prototype at milan design week 2012
in an interactive installation where the seat was outfitted with sensors emitting electronic signals
which collected data from more than 1,500 testers. designers clemens weisshaar and reed kram
took the gathered information and worked together with engineers of AUDI's lightweight construction centre
to fine-tune the design, resulting in a carbon fibre and aluminium sheet metal construction which weighs only
2.2 kilograms (4.85 lbs), offering maximum stability and comfort through a minimal application of materials.
