Mathias Bengtsson's designs explore the intersection of technology and nature

 

Danish-born, London-based designer Mathias Bengtsson is no ordinary furniture designer. Ever since graduating in 1999 from London's Royal College of Art, he has been interested in pushing the boundaries of furniture design. His vision is a unique mix of traditional furniture-making and sculptural concepts, which culminates in dynamic and striking designs.

His recent output focuses on the intersection of modern technology and nature, producing natural shapes with cutting-edge technique. His aptly titled 'Growth' series of furniture is based on the organic shapes of plants and trees, all while being produced with a 3D printing technique. Even though he uses modern methods and materials, Bengtsson's sketching process follows the traditional architectural sketching model, with hand-drawn plans and clay modelling. Synchronous to this, the prototype for the 'Growth' series was made with classic, hands-on methods, from carved walnut parts.

The proportions, shapes and dynamics of the model were then input into a special 'virtual seed', a computer program designed to simulate the natural growth process. Only the defining characteristics of the table were set in stone, the shape and size of it are a result of the virtual growing approach. This virtual-organic plan was then formed using 3D printing methods.
