A new Spanish Design brand Nagami makes its official debut this year in the Milan Design Week 2018 with four 3D printed chairs. Nagami is a design brand which explores the future of product design in a new technological era.
The collection is called : “Brave New World – Rethinking design & large scale robotic 3D printing”.
Here are these four 3D printed chairs by Nagami:
Bow by Zaha Hadid Architects
Rise by Zaha Hadid Architects
These chairs combine pristine design informed by structural optimisation processes typically found in nature with innovative materials and the most advanced fabrication methods. The pattern and the colour gradient of both pieces concur in redefining the traditional spatial relationship between furniture and its setting.
Bow and Rise have been printed with a pellet-extruder employing raw plastic particles rather than a filament. The chosen plastic is PLA, a nontoxic, biodegradable material from renewable sources such as corn-starch, which ensure lightness and stability.
Robotica TM by Ross Lovegrove
Robotica TM takes form at the convergence of two fields – botany and robotics – to coin a new approach to design that crystallises the natural programming in nature with that of robotics within artificial manufacturing.
The design is of a high stool that has 360 degree formal access.
Thus the aesthetic being non directional implies an adaptation of the typology away from furniture and into a new territory of stand alone aesthetic object whereby its function is not immediately intelligible.
But there is in fact no compromise in its function which despite its ambiguity can perform as a table for placing food on as taken out of the oven as the silicon inserts are heat proof , as a plinth for a sculpture -TV or any manner of ancilliary needs within a home .
Peeler by Daniel Widrig
Peeler has been conceived to overcome the limits of additive manufacturing, thus far serving small niche markets.
Winking at mass production, it is 3D printed in single 7mm thick shells of PLA by an industrial robot in just a few hours, consuming a small amount of machine time with minimum waste of material.
The chair has been designed to satisfy both the ergonomic constraints of the human body, as well as the ergonomics of the robotic arm that prints it. Consisting of three undulating skin like surfaces, Peeler emerges out of a convergence of human and machine requirements.
