The Dutch Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam) has acquired the Makerschair Hexagon from Dutch designer Joris Laarman into its collection and … everybody can print it in 3D. The only thing that is required are some serious technical skills, says Ludo van Halem curator of the Rijksmuseum.
The Makerschair Hexagon is a design chair in black and white consisting of 77 puzzle pieces. So, if you have a 3D-printer or a computer assisted mill machine, you may be able (if you have the technical chops) to create this open source chair by yourself. The design is on Bits & Parts, an open source-project where designer Joris Laarman shared the design of the chair. Bits & Parts aims to utilize small 3dprinters and cnc milling machines to fabricate full size affordable furniture available to all. “By fractioning designs into many small parts we where able to radically expand the potential of small consumer 3d printers and cnc milling machines. The 3D parts can be assembled into a piece of furniture like a 3 dimensional puzzle”, following Bits & Parts.
