Robotically 3D Printed Chair
Designed by Manuel Jimenez Garcia and Gilles Retsin, the unique Voxel Chair 1.0 is robotically 3D printed with the assistance of fabrication firm Nagami.Design and Vicente Soler, producing optimized large scale objects through robotic additive manufacture. The turquoise mesh like structure is extruded PLA plastic, appearing science fiction like. Gilles Retsin’s London based architecture and design practice focuses on new architectural models that engage with the potential of increased computational power and fabrication to generate buildings and objects with a previously unseen structure, detail and materiality. The studio deals chiefly with the impact of computation on the core principles of architecture. Voxel Chair 1.0 is currently exhibited at Imprimer Le Monde in Centre Pompidou Paris.
