Droog will present Paper bone chair by Joris Laarman, a previously unreleased early study of the internationally acclaimed aluminum Bone chair. Made out of paper with laminated object manufacturing technology—the first rapid prototyping technique now superseded by laser sintering—the one-off piece is an example of ‘antique high-tech’. For both pieces, Laarman uses 3D soft kill optimization software used in the automobile industry to literally generate the shape of a chair as an evolutionary process.
The aluminum Bone chair has joined various public collections such as MoMA NY, Vitra Design Museum, Centraal Museum Utrecht and the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg.
