Nagami made its first debut during this year’s Milan Design Week with four 3D printed chairs. The collection named Brave New World was one of the highlights of the event in this year’s edition.
Brave New World was based on the dystopian novel by Aldous Huxley with the same title. In this collection, there are four pieces: two chairs named Bow and Rise, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, a stool called Robotica TM by British designer Ross Lovegrove and the Peeler chair by London designer and architect Daniel Widrig.
In the case of the Bow and Rise chairs Zaha Hadid Architects based this on the natural growth processes seen underwater, like for example in coral formations. In fact, the Bow chair is very allusive to a shape seen underwater, beautifully obtained with the combination of black and purple. The Rise chair also has this same kind of feel to it, although the colors more prevalent in this are blue and golden.
For the TM stool, Ross Lovegrove combined botany and robotics in the making of this product. The technique used for the building of it was a rotational process that made each layer fuse together. The result is a chair that can also serve as a table for eating dinner or as simply a decorative piece at home.
Lastly, the Peeler chair was probably the simplest one to make. Daniel Widrig wanted his product to consume less material waste and time as possible. The result is this black chair made out of three pieces of seven millimeter-thick shells of PLA plastic, therefore being conceived in a more ecological fashion.
