The chair printed on the 3D-printer, is capable to take the form of your body
As a rule, the furniture which has been unpacked on 3D-printers, very beautifully looks, but in practice it appears terribly inconvenient. It firm, not so pleasant to the touch and long on it you will not stay. The Dutch designer Lillian van Distance decided to change the current state of affairs.
The designer studied for a long time processes of production of the most different furniture to find out, people consider what chairs and sofas especially comfortable, and what technologies and materials are better for avoiding. She managed to develop a graceful and plain way of manufacturing of furniture by means of the ordinary 3D-printer.
At the heart of the invention of the designer special yacheechny structure of furniture. You can see it in photos. Thus cells can be a different form, without differing from each other is functional. The multilayered structure of such furniture does it surprisingly strong, but thus very soft and convenient. The chair literally takes the form of a body of the person which sat down on it.
Lilian at creation of the furniture derived inspiration from the wild nature. She was inspired by some sea inhabitants with their spongy structure that was directly reflected in its works.
Considering that the furniture is made of only one type of plastic – its production much more simply, rather than creation of a similar home decoration which gather with use of tens various materials and the details made on a set of plants not connected with each other and factories. One more plus of plastic furniture – its environmental friendliness. Today to process plastic by means of modern techniques it is much simpler, rather than any sofa in which there is a wood, metals and a set of other materials.
The artist while made some copies of the furniture in the reduced scale and tested them on children. All examinees remained new furniture are very happy. The truth here to print such chair in house conditions, it is necessary to spend on the average 96 hours of time and 10 000 dollars for materials.
It is possible to tell that while the price of such furniture the quite snappish. If to put furniture on the factory conveyor, the price list can decrease in times then it will be successfully possible to sell furniture in shops. Lillian also aspires to it at present, carrying on negotiations with large producers of furniture worldwide.
