Bristle Chair

Many tinny branches work together to for a rigid structural mass. The chair is designed for direct digital manufacturing using FDM 3D printing technology. The entire chair could be manufactured on demand as one ABS plastic part.

Voronoi From 3d Curves

Recently I have been experimenting with generating 3D voronoi structures from points arrayed along curves. The voronoi cells follow the curve and define a continuous space around the curve. Essentially the voronoi is generating surfaces that define the space that falls between these knot like curves. Because of the density of the points along the curve these interesting surfaces are generated that are reminiscent of minimal surfaces.
