Generative furniture from wooden leftovers

"regrowth" explores the connection between computational design and the use of leftover materials within the forestry industry. Wood is viewed in its naturally grown form, rather than seeing it as a linear, standardized unit. The evolved geometries are closely studied to take advantage of their formal and constructive properties. The naturally grown form language is not elaborately imitated, but consistently and sustainably taken from nature. The furniture pieces embodies the growth story of its material, a dynamic process that can be read in the static object.
