Spanish company Nagami presented four avant-garde chairs created by several design veterans for the brand: Zaha Hadid Architects, Ross Lovegrove, Daniel Widrig.
Bow and Rise are the latest results of Zaha Hadid architects’ extensive research with 3D printing and material experimentation. They’re biodegradable, and machine-optimized — printed with a pellet-extruder, and colored in such an adaptive way. These chairs are highly empathetic to the room they find themselves in.
Another highly adaptable piece in the collection is Ross Lovegrove’s Robotica TM. Combining botany with robotics, the 360 degree, mathematically nature-inspired seat can double as a heat-proof table and fulfill other auxiliary functions in the home.
3D printed in single, 7mm thick shells in just a few hours, Daniel Widrig’s undulating, black Peeler puts the previous limits of additive manufacturing to shame. Far less machine time, less wasting of materials — peeler not only considers the shape of the human that will sit in the chair, but the robotic arm that will print it as well.
