Manufacturer: Joris Laarman Lab
The Polygon Chair is part of Joris Laarman’s Maker Series, where all the chairs are built from digitally fabricated parts that fit together like a 3 dimensional puzzle. The pieces fro this chair were CNC milled from solid oak.
Laarman’s intention was to create something that could radically expand the potential of of small consumer 3D printers and CNC milling machines. The studio plans on making the designs for many of the chairs available for download, and will encourage others to modify and make them.
Laarman was born in Borculo, Netherlands in 1979. He graduated Cum Laude from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2003. Laarman first received international recognition for his “Heatwave radiator” produced by the Dutch design brand Droog and later manufactured by Jaga Climate Systems. In 2004, Laarman together with his partner Anita Star, founded Joris Laarman Lab in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The lab collaborates with craftsmen, scientists and engineers and the possibilities of emerging technologies as CNC systems, 3D printing, robotics or simulation software.
Laarman’s designs are in the permanent collections and exhibitions in such institutions as MoMA, New York; V&A, London ; Centre Pompidou, Paris.
