Solid C2 Chair
This is a chair. It was designed by Patrick Jouin and manufactured by Materialise NV. It is dated 2009 and we acquired it in 2009. Its medium is stereolithography-formed epoxy resin. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Jouin’s Solid C2 chair, made by an additive manufacturing process, is an elegant network of intersecting lines resembling sketches of natural structures. Indeed, nature inspired the chair, even though the grass-like form of the epoxy resin elements is determined by an electronic code.
