Bow and Rise Chairs by Zaha Hadid Architects for Nagami
Updated: Dec 8, 2019
The Bow and Rise Chairs showcase ZHA’s ongoing research into 3D printing and material experimentation. Their design is informed by the structural optimisation processes typically found in nature, with their materials and fabrication methods expressed in the pattern and the colour gradient of both pieces.
The Bow and Rise Chairs have been printed with a pellet-extruder using raw particles of biodegradable PLA materials from renewable sources–such as corn-starch–that provide lightness and stability.
