Emerging High Technology
The first series of design chairs inspired by bionic forms and structures present in nature and 3D printed in concrete by the highest resolution concrete powder bed printing technology available today.
The organic design language makes the chairs unique pieces of sculptural furniture, embodying a dynamic and future oriented lifestyle. Printed by the highest resolution concrete powder bed printing technology available today, the chairs are lightweight and durable, making them pieces of furniture to be passed on from generation to generation.
Designed with natural patterns in mind, CHAIR N°ONE revisits the features of nature that are reflected in the design language of the chair. Intricate bionic structures emulate patterns present in plants and other living beings. The 3D printing method displays the nuances and patterns similar to tree rings left from manufacturing, providing every single piece with its unique signature.
Sustainably printed by using recycled glass as base material, the chairs embody one of the futureproof ways to create and reshape objects we interact with on a daily basis. The chairs are printed in one piece, providing structural stability and a continuous, smooth surface. The raw sensations provided by the material instantly connect the user to the object, fulfilling our desire for simplicity, purity, and essentiality.
The cement printing compounds can be chosen based on indoor or outdoor use of CHAIR N°ONE, making the chair a universally usable piece of artistic design furniture.
