The 'TAMU' chair has been debuted by France-based designer Patrick Jouin at Milan Design Week as an organically inspired seating solution that has been created with a number of processes in mind.

The chair features a folding design that is capable of being flatpacked, which has been achieved thanks to the intricate 3D-printed aesthetic that boasts an ornately finished product. The chair has been created by Jouin using the Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and boasts a sustainable, organic design that is unlike anything observed before.

Jouin explained the 'TAMU' chair further explaining that, "As a product designer today I find that the borders between form, function, and matter have be-come fluid as the design process itself becomes more organic. Previously designers were inspired by ‘organic’ as a style, but what is completely new is that designers are now inspired by the organic process itself, and how to emulate it. We are no longer thinking about design in terms of style, but we are thinking about it with an efficiency mindset."
