Description

Galerie Maria Wettergren

The “Cellular Chair Silver” by Mathias Bengtsson represents an amazing blend of art, design and biotechnology. Made of 3D printed resin, covered with silver, the piece started as a digital seed, based on the evolution of cellular bone tissues. Rather than composed, the Cellular Chair has been “grown”, obeying the growth logic of a living organism, with it’s own DNA. Mathias Bengtsson expresses a rare mastery of opposites, such as high technology and exquisite craftsmanship, digital and handmade, conveying an interesting tension between these apparently antagonistic techniques.
