Bone chaise longue by Joris Laarman

Joris Laarman’s aluminum chair and resin chaise longue represent a series of works which are designed according to the way bones develop; growing where strength is needed and shrinking where it is not.

Laarman developed this design process with the help of software used in the car industry to make components lighter. This principle allows the designer to revolutionize the design process and optimize material allocation and weight.

The thickness and overall structure of the resin chaise longue is again (partly) a consequence of the strength of the material. This principle shows that an identical bone-structure system can create different results.
