This is an unusual and unique chair designed by Mathias Bengtsson for MINDCRAFT exhibition. He combines industrial techniques with traditional cabinetmaking methods, creating a sculptural, organic chair that looks like tangled roots of a tree.
“Growth Chair simulates natural growth, copying some of nature’s rules and methods. Growth Chair is a ‘digital seed’ that grows in a virtual world inside a purpose-designed computer program. In a biomimicry process, the digital seed emulates natural growth, imitating some of nature’s rules and methods. The furniture parameters have been embedded in the digital seed; however, the form is not defined ahead of time but emerges as a result of the growth process.”
