Cellular chair by Mathias Bengtsson

May 27th, 2011 by retail design blog

Composed of light-weight epoxy, ‘Cellular chair’ by danish-born, london-based designer Mathias Bengtsson not only adopts the appearance of an organic form but is actually designed based on the growth principles of human bones.
The exterior shape of the chair is pre-set, but the interior geometric structure is determined uniquely for each piece by a computer program designed to simulate the regeneration of bone tissue. Given the exterior form as its input, the program creates the cellular configuration that bone tissue might adopt to create a strong, stable construction.

Bengtsson notes, ‘I aim to take my thinking in new directions and to break down established boundaries between design, craft, and technology by combining unconventional tools in the creation of my works.
Everything about our time inspires me, especially technology and its evolution.’
