Week 6 Assignment

Create a fully functioning, animated Four Bar Linkage system. Have a purpose and/or function in mind for the linkage.

This is the linkage system that I decided on last week.

For my four bar linkage project, I was thinking about creating a chair that could be converted into a louge chair or a sitting chair depending on the angle that it is resting on. 

I was inspired by the Le Corbusier LC4 chair that I imagined to have a similar shape to what this linkage system would be applied to.

Four Bar Linkage System

I have not figured out exactly how this could be applied to a chair yet but will continue to work on it with further modeling that incorporates this system.
