Entirely self-taught, Marco Costa finds inspiration in the Surrealist movement. Beyond the furniture and its primary function, our head designer pushes the object to new levels and blurs the boundaries.He has conceived this exclusive piece by questioning the notion of space, experimenting with material, and playing with color. Emporium is a chair made in aluminum with a particular detail: it only has three legs!

A sense of fun and frivolity pervades this chair, but this exclusive piece also manages to be sophisticated, thought provoking and (above all) finely handcrafted.
Perhaps Marco dares to create a design piece so eloquently because the focus of his approach is to explore the fragility of our humanity by revealing the beauty in imperfection. Marco felt it was about time to design a piece that made justice to the weakness that humankind is experiencing today.

5 – Mycelium Chair by Eric Klarenbeek

Product designer Eric Klarenbeek has 3D-printed a chair using living fungus, which then grows inside the structure to give it strength. The chair is the result of a collaboration between Klarenbeek and scientists at the University of Wageningen to develop a new way of printing with living organisms. “Our main purpose  was to bring together the machine and nature to create a new material that could be used to make any product,” Klarenbeek explained.

The result is a new material that, Klarenbeek believes, could be used to make almost anything in future. “It could be a table, a whole interior or even a house,” he said. “We could build a house with it.”

6 -Solid C2 chair by Patrick Jouin

Created in 2004 by French designer Patrick Jouin in collaboration with digital manufacturers MGX by Materialise, the Solid C2 chair was made from intersecting ribbons of material that ignored furniture-making traditions in favour of the freeform shapes that 3D printing allows.

“The Solid chair was the first furniture piece made with the SLS [selective laser sintering] technique in one piece,” says the museum’s curator of industrial design Ingeborg de Roode. “It clearly shows the possibilities of this technique to make very complicated structures.”
