Intricate 3D-Printed Chair Crafted from Sugar and Sake
3D food printers have recently started to gain popularity, as we’ve seen at CES and with those lifelike chocolate faces. But London-based designer Daniel Widrig has taken this edible art one step further with his Degenerate Chair creation.
The intricately-woven sculpture is made entirely from the designer’s own Z Corp 3D printing machine using a mixture of plaster, sugar and sake. While the chair’s elements are simple, the actual building process is quite complex. Widrig first modeled the chair using 3D tiling software and after perfecting its shape, it was broken down into high-res voxels, or three dimensional pixels. Because the printer couldn’t accommodate the entire chair, it had to be printed in three parts and put together separately. What resulted is no doubt strange and beautiful:
Widrig’s Degenerate Chair is currently on display in Orléans, France at the FRAC Centre through March.
