3D Printed Eames Chair for Textile Museum of Canada

 

We were recently invited by Levitt Goodman Architects to work with them on a sculpture for the Textile Museum of Canada. The project is for reDesign 2012, an event that tasked designers to re-imagine a classic Eames chair. The piece is being exhibited and auctioned off this evening at Bonhams.

The project turned out to be a fantastic collaboration. It brought together all of our favorite mediums: 3D scanning, parametric design and 3D printing. Below is a video illustrating the whole process from start to finish.
