Joris Laarman is a Dutch designer who is currently showcasing his work at the Friedman Benda Gallery. "For the installation, the artist employs cutting-edge tools – from CNC mills to 3D printers – to enable new shapes, fabrication and methods, manifested through an intersection between technology and craftsmanship," as stated on DesignBoom.

Laarman really wanted to demonstrate just how much influence digital technology has on people's everyday lives with this collection, so he focused on creating items in unconventional ways. However, even though these methods are new now, in a decade they could be commonplace. These are the types of thoughts Laarman was hoping to evoke amongst visitors at the exhibition. He also states that his aim is for other artists to push the boundaries of what can be done with this new technology.
