Every chair has its own set of DNA—its silhouette the result of aesthetic choices the designer programmed into the piece early on. It’s hard to mistake the soft curve and criss-crossed base of Eames molded plastic side chair. Or the encompassing depth of the Eero Saarinen Womb Chair. Imagine, now, that those aesthetic genes were turned into mathematical models and then tweaked. That’s what you get with John Briscella’s newest line of 3D printed chairs, Continuum3. The series pays tribute to the classic midcentury forms of designers like Eames and Saarinen, but there’s something distinctly different about the end result.
