Futuristic And Surreal Double Position Chair By Alex Petunin
The grand promise of the 3D printing revolution has always been that one day we’d all have access to customizable products which could be made on an industrial, mass-produced scale.
3D printing has come a long way in an extremely short span of time and continues to evolve at a pace so fast that it will not be long before simple spare parts, plastic toys or cases for smartphones for example, will primarily be sold globally by downloading a 3D printing file.
One of those who bet on this technology is Alex Petunin, a young russian architect and product designer who embraces the wonder of 3D-printing technologies to realise his vision, a retro-futuristic, range of furniture that seems to be drawn from the Jetsons.
One of his last creations is an organically shaped chair filled with colorful stripes, dubbed as the Double Position chair. Manufactured by ArtTech and made from painted wood, it can be used as an armchair, lounge chair or rocking chair (if you remove the front leg).
The Double Position chair by Alex Petunin perfectly illustrates his design philosophy, according to which he loves ‘futuristic form, bright colors and contemporary production methods’.
Awesome piece of furniture with a funky design which seems to be rather a functional art form than a chair.
