edhv: debug chair

‘debug’ chair

‘debug’ chair designed by dutch studio edhv was created using the trail patterns of
insects. each of these species has its own behavior which is influenced by its environment,
including factors such as light conditions and obstacles along that come along its path.
using a self-built experimental machine consisting of a tracking software and mapping
scripts, edhv was able to record the unique travelling behaviour of various creatures
such as house crickets, wood lice and ants. the data was then translated into creating
this three dimensional model.

edhv’s previous ‘debug’ project used the data collected from the movements of insects
to generate visuals. for more information on designboom’s coverage of edhv’s ‘debug’
posters, see here.
