nagami launches 3D-printed chairs by zaha hadid architects, ross lovegrove + daniel widrig

at milan design week 2018, these four avant-garde chairs — pioneered by the new, spanish company, ‘nagami’ — will go on display. they will be the first four products ever presented by nagami, who partnered with design veterans to bring the imaginative chairs to life. in particular, zaha hadid architects’ bow and rise chairs stand out, in the innovative arsenal of nagami’s first project titled, ‘brave new world: re-thinking design and large-scale robotic 3D printing.’

‘bow’ and ‘rise’ are the latest results of zaha hadid architects’ extensive research with 3D printing and material experimentation. they’re biodegradable, and machine-optimized — printed with a pellet-extruder (meaning, they employ plastic particles rather than filament), and colored in such an adaptive way. these chairs are highly empathetic to the room they find themselves in.

another highly adaptable piece in the collection is ross lovegrove’s ‘robotica TM’ (the geometric, silicone spiral). combining botany with robotics, the 360 degree, mathematically nature-inspired seat can double as a heat-proof table and fulfill other auxiliary functions in the home.

3D printed in single, 7mm thick shells in just a few hours, daniel widrig’s undulating, black ‘peeler’ puts the previous limits of additive manufacturing to shame. far less machine time, less wasting of materials — peeler not only considers the shape of the human that will sit in the chair, but the robotic arm that will print it as well.

nagami will have an explorative pop-up showroom in the brera design district, where zaha hadid architects’, ross lovegrove, and daniel widrig’s chairs will give viewers a taste into the unseen merging of territories — furniture design and experience design. ‘we design products that until now were just waiting for the right technology to come to life,’ says nagami’s founders: manuel jimenez garcía, miki jimenez garcía and ignacio viguera ochoa. ‘not only objects that you can hold, but also that you can feel and experience as part of your environment.’

following a keynote by patrik schumacher (principal at zaha hadid architects), the showroom will become a breeding ground for new ideas. throughout milan design week, ross lovegrove, daniel widrig, isaie bloch, claudia pasquero, arturo tedeschi, and more will give lectures at the nagami showroom. see designboom’s ongoing coverage of milan design week here.
