ravioli. chair.

The Ravioli Chair is the work of architect and theorist Greg Lynn, in collaboration with...his computer. I'll quote here: "By means of the opportunities afforded by computer simulation, a square surface is blown up in three dimensions into a spatial shape that can support any number of uses, offering a rest, a seat, armrests, and a backrest. Ravioli therefore constitutes a contemporary interpretation of classical upholstered furniture."

Cool, no? I think so. The pattern on the chair is digitally designed too and comes in three different color combinations. Seems to cost in the $3,650 range. I believe most of that goes towards the computer's commission.
