Joris Laarman Lab 3D Prints Cellular Aluminum Chair

by • March 30, 2016 • No Comments

  • Joris Laarman Lab has become many notable for its work to 3D print a bridge in Amsterdam, through MX3D studio, but preceding this large-scaled metal welding robotic arm, the lab was implementing additional traditional methods of metal 3D printing innovation. In addition to large-scale bridge projects, the Lab is known for its intricate furniture create, such as the ‘Aluminum Gradient Chair’ which Laarman fabricated for Friedman Benda Gallery in New York in 2014.


    The chair was engineered at the cellular level, with the Lab bringing advantage of the create freedom afforded by 3D printing. Turning to direct metal laser sintering, pretty than their large-scale MX3D metal welding robotic arm, the studio created a piece which was both lightmass and structurally sound, while in addition aesthetically pleasing. Solid cells in the create allow for structural integrity, but are combined with hollow cells for mass and material reduction.


    For the ‘Bits and Crafts’ exhibition at the Friedman Benda Gallery, the Lab in fact fabricated three Gradient Chairs. One chair is now a part of the permanent collection at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Austria, while another is on display at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany.
