Grow Your Own Furniture

I appreciate the innovation and concept of designer Werner Aisslinger, Chair Farm.  
This 'grow your own chair' is a completely revolutionary spin on DIY home design projects. 

Aisslinger believes that: Historically, exciting, visionary and pioneering designs have always rested on the transformation of materials and technology into a new context.



From the product description:

“Plant yourself a chair …”

The chair farm concept is as simple as it is radical. A “plantation chair” produced in an agricultural Lab is an production utopia of the future...

The chair is no longer produced in the classical sense of the word. Instead, it grows of its own volition in a greenhouse or on a field. When it has reached maturity, the steel corset is opened and removed, revealing a naturally grown chair.




Do you see 'growing your own furniture' as the way of the future?
