A growing chair

I based this miniature- chairs on the Bone Chair from Joris Laarman. His chair is based on algorithms that simulate the way bones grow. For me it was another form of a desire to be able to grow objects. There are many designers searching for a way to grow furniture, and it goes way back. There are tribes in forests, for example in India, that let trees grow into bridges. It’s a different way of designing, you are not totally in control of a product’s appearance. I grow my own little chairs. I used a crystal growing kit I bought at Action and used pipe cleaners as frame for the crystals to grow on. After a week the chairs were crystallized.
