Chaise, Microstructures

This is a Chaise. It was designed by Joris Laarman Lab.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Joris Laarman as part of Joris Laarman Lab: Design in the Digital Age.

It is dated 2014. Its medium is 3d-printed polyamide, copper, nickel, textile, foam.

The Gradient Lounge is composed of hexagonal cells that morph in openness and density to address different functional areas in the seat. The textile upholstery was digitally knit using a computer-controlled knitting machine. The hexagonal pattern in the textile precisely aligns with the hexagonal structure of the seat.
