Designer Mathias Bengtsson strives to discover ways of challenging technology and combines industrial techniques with traditional cabinetmaking methods often with unconventional results. With ‘Growth Chair’ he has created a sculptural, organic work that resembles the tangled roots of a tree.

“Growth Chair simulates natural growth, copying some of nature’s rules and methods.” says Bengtsson. “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.”

 

Growth Chair will be shown at Danish Crafts’ MINDCRAFT exhibition during Milan Design Week at Fuori Salone from April 9th to 14th, 2013.
