Beirut based “Post Industrial Crafts” (PIC) is a research and creation lab based in Beirut, Lebanon. PIC works on complex geometries with digital tools to create engaging sculptural shapes. Their innovation is backed by over 20 years experience in design & architecture. In their large workshop they use advanced digital fabrication machines in order to implement and test their creative propositions. PIC’s workshop includes large scale 3D printers, five 7 axis 10 Tons robot arms and all the needed tools to produce all their designs. They employ architects, designers, engineers and coders, in order to produce in-house solutions, including 3D code, to produce cost efficient, beautiful and engaging products.
This chair is a cross DNA between the conversation and rocking chair typologies. A 3D-printed monolith with no connections nor assembly, it is produced using generative design, and refined to be both comfortable to any user/debater and to rock effortlessly. Both sculptural and fully functional, the chair defines a tubular void which makes it mostly transparent in side view. The engaging playful approach, the precise ergonomic, with the rocking movement, make it a hypnotizing piece where comfort and rocking meet.
It was nominated as one of the 4 finalists for the Architectural Digest's Product Design Awards in 2021.
