Slice Chair

Good lord I've been overwhelmingly busy at work this week.

I'll keep this short - but check out this ridiculously cool chair from Mathias Bengtsson. Bengtsson combines 3-D modeling, laser cutting and hand crafting techniques to create organic looking work that has deep technological roots.

Check out more of his work at his site.

The form is modeled by hand then digitized by a computer, then sliced. The resulting shape of each slice is mapped onto an aluminum, corrugated cardboard or plywood sheet, which is cut accordingly. When the stack is re-assembled, a chair is formed, looking like a kind of symmetrical erosion."
