Growth Chair-Digital Seed * Mathias Bengtsson

Growth Chair is a ‘digital seed’ that grows in a virtual world inside a purpose-designed computer program. In a biomimicry process, the digital seed emulates natural growth, imitating some of nature’s rules and methods. The furniture parameters have been embedded in the digital seed; however, the form is not defined ahead of time but emerges as a result of the growth process.

 

Born in Copenhagen in 1971, Mathias Bengtsson studied furniture design at the Danish College of Design (Danmarks Designskole). From 1992-3, Bengtsson attended the Art Centre College in Switzerland, then returned to Copenhagen where he formed the design collective known as ‘Panic’ together with four other graduates. After he received his degree in 1999, Bengtsson collaborated with fellow graduates to create the design studio named ‘At the Third Stroke’. A year later, he co-founded ‘Design Laboratory’ in partnership with Sam Buxton, then went on to establish his own studio in 2002.

 

 

In 2002, Bengtsson’s work was shown in the ‘Design by Aluminium’ exhibition held at the Design Museum in London, and also exhibited by Sotheby’s Contemporary Art department, who presented Bengtsson’s work again in 2003 and 2004. In 2003, the British Council featured Bengtsson’s furniture in the ’Great Brits’ exhibition held in Milan during the Salone del Mobile, which later travelled to Tokyo and Sao Paulo.

 

Across the Atlantic, the plywood version of the Slice chair was acquired by the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston, Texas. In New York, gallerist Barry Friedman began exhibiting Bengtsson’s work, and Phillips auctioneers, also based in New York, exhibited and subsequently sold Bengtsson’s Spun carbon-fibre chaise longue in 2004.

Kill Art // Trust Design 2.0 By Antoni Tudisco





Few artists call themselves designers because they seem to better understand the difference. Artists do not create their work to sell a product or promote a service. They create it solely as a means of self-expression, so that it can be viewed and appreciated by others. The message, if we can even call it that, is not a fact but a feeling.” Art is Patron-ed, Design is Purchased. Art existed before capitalism, before design was “bought”, things were merely improvements or innovations made by intelligent people or practical users. Art is an invention made by an individual, for individual interpretation.
