Spiral Blonde Side Table by Ben Dungey

Home > Winners > #130829


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Spiral Blonde

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Side Table

INSPIRATION:
The design takes inspiration from fractal art and mathematics. Fractals are self-similar shapes or patterns which repeat recursively at different scales to generate complex, captivating forms. Combining fractal forms with the beautiful shimmering effects possible through straw marquetry represents a unique approach to the creation of elaborate and beguiling objects.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Spiral Blonde side table is equally a work of art and also a functional piece of furniture. Its distinctive geometric form and intricate patterned surface achieve a striking aesthetic which subtly transforms over the course of the day as the quality of light changes. Production of the table has combined the traditional art of straw marquetry with modern 3D printing and all materials used in its assembly are fully biodegradable and come from renewable resources.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Spiral Blonde can function as a side table or stool and its strong aesthetic qualities also lend it to use as a standalone piece of art. Its captivating form and shimmer draw the eye, creating a bold focal point in interior settings.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Production occurred during 2020-2021 in Sydney, Australia

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The 3D model was generated using open source modelling software and employed python scripts to develop the form of the design algorithmically. The model was then printed in parts on a 3D printer using wood fibre filament and the parts were soldered together and the joints sanded down smooth. Organically grown rye straw was applied to the completed base structure using traditional straw marquetry techniques, with each piece of straw ironed flat, cut precisely then glued down to create the intricate pattern.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 350mm x Depth 350mm x Height 450mm

TAGS:
Side table, 3D print, 3D printed furniture, straw marquetry, algorithmic design, fractal

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Development of the design came out of studies of fractal mathematics and the generation of three dimensional objects using algorithmic processes. Subsequent printing of the 3D model involved extensive analysis and testing of materials and fabrication techniques to determine the best approach to printing the complex, organic shape in a way which created a robust base structure suited for use as a piece of furniture and to which straw marquetry could be applied.

CHALLENGE:
Applying straw marquetry to a 3D printed object is a unique approach to furniture fabrication, and key challenges were around printing the curved, organic base structure and ensuring the rye straw adhered to it effectively.
