Dragon Bench

Authors | Joris Laarman Lab, MX3D
Project Name | Dragon Bench
Objective | Sub-D modeling

One of the first public examples of the MX3D metal 3d printing technology, was the Dragon Bench designed by Joris Laarman Lab. Object’s role was to develop various shapes for the benches, which would preserve the dynamic feel of the piece, as well as follow the ergonomy constraints. For a responsive and fluent workflow, a set of tools were developed to give the designer an instant feedback on ergonomy. Dragons are in the permanent collection of the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, USA, the Groninger Museum, NL, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, USA and the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, AUS
