A printed concrete chair….
It doesn’t necessarily sound ergonomic or comfortable. But through the magic of 3D printing, the CHAIR N°ONE is actually both, with an elegant and curved form.
Designed by Martin Oberhauser of Studio Oberhauser, the chair is one of the first in a series of furniture created through a process called selective cement activation.
The unique form proved to be award winning, taking home a RedDot award for best design in furniture.
This eco-friendly design utilizes a recycled glass base and shows the promise of 3D printing, which we’ve seen take on applications from furniture to footwear, and even hotels.
The 3d printed chair is a miniature look alike of the birds nest Olympic Stadium, Beijing.
In the not too distant future, I dare to think that giant amphitheaters would be 3d printed.
Mind boggling, but with the magic of selective cement activation, in my minds eye, I can visualize it. Impossible is nothing.
