We discovered this awsome dign-chair and thought "man! this is awsome!" And so Dough and Fruit dicided to make a post about this piece and its designer.

The Materials he uses are for the seat & Backrest: high polishes aluminum and for struts: silk polished aluminum


Joris Laarman puts it this way:

"If evolution could create a chair...
Trees have the ability to add material where strength it is needed. But bones also have the ability to take away material where it is not needed. With this knowledge the International Development Centre Adam Opel GmbH, a part of General Motors Engineering Europe created a dynamic digital tool to copy these ways of constructing used for optimizing car parts. In a way it quite precisely copies the way evolution constructs. I didn't use it to create the next worlds perfect chair but as a high tech sculpting tool to create elegant shape with a kind of legitimacy. The chair is the first in a series and the process can be applied to any scale until architectural sizes in any material strength..."
