Leaf Chair by Antonio Pio Saracino
Updated: Jan 29, 2020
Designed by Antonio Pio Saracino and manufactured and 3d printed by Materialise as a limited edition project, the Leaf Chair is partly inspired by the structures of vegetation. The “veins” of the chair follow a curvilinear form, thickening and becoming trapezoidal at those points where the pressure of the human body is the highest.
Traditionally, the pressure points of a chair are hidden within the structure, but in the case of the Leaf Chair, they are fully revealed. As an object of design, the Leaf Chair is flexible and resistant. The functionality and the organics of its design are transparent.
