The Bone Furniture collection is a lesson in both nature and technology. A fusing of two seemingly opposing disciplines, the series of seating, tables and shelving show that the two can not only coincide harmoniously, but also creatively to become objects that are as much works of art as they are pieces of furniture.

Designed by Joris Laarman, the Bone Furniture collection has a sinuous skeletal appearance that is very futuristic. The Dutch designer writes, "Ever since industrialization took over mainstream design we have wanted to make objects inspired by nature: from art nouveau and jugendstil to streamline and the organic design of the sixties. But our digital age makes it possible to not just use nature as a stylistic reference, but to actually use the underlaying principles to generate shapes like an evolutionary process."
