Deformable models that evolve under a set of mutual forces and constraints
can be used to solve various problems in graphical design. We describe a
system that takes as input the silhouette of a seated person and creates a
chair that is aesthetically pleasing and structurally sound. We encode the
input image and knowledge of furniture design into a set of force fields
and constraints, and then allow several deformable models to evolve into
stable shapes in this environment. The interface of the system allows the
