Description

Galerie Maria Wettergren

With “Growth Chaise Longue”, Mathias Bengtsson takes organic design to another level. Instead of simply imitating organic form, this masterpiece of sculptural design is created through some of Nature’s own rules and methods. Made of bronze, cast into 3D printed molds, Growth Chaise Longue started as a digital seed, programmed with DNA. During the seed’s maturation, meteorological conditions were randomly applied, thereby according the piece its distinctive organic look. With “Growth Chaise Longue”, 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.
