This incredibly interesting and innovative 3D-printed chair design is inspired by nature as observed on the microscopic level. The piece is conceived by Lilian van Daal and its silhouette entertains a type of uniformity and aesthetic that can be linked to cell structures. Dubbed 'Radiolaria #1,' the seating furniture is made with a technique that did not require adhesives. The primary material for the 3D-printed chair is polymer powder pieces, made from recycled polyamide/PA 12 by Oceanz — a company that specializes in 3D printing techniques.

The ultra-intricate aesthetic of Lilian van Daal's design is captivating. To achieve the highly geometrical and connected puzzle-like appearance, the creative looked into "the intricacies of flowers and the mycelium networks of fungi." Without a doubt, the Radiolaria #1 3D-printed chair offers new paths of exploration for furniture design.
