MEAN* Middle East Architecture Network X Nagami, Designed by Riyad Joucka
‘موج — Mawj’, the Arabic word for ‘Wave, undulate, crisp or ripple,’ reflects the concept behind this design.
موج — Mawj is a 3D Printed Armchair commissioned by a private client and designed by MEAN (Middle East Architecture Network).
The undulating patterns of the Aquamarine green surface are reminiscent of the waters of the Arabian Sea at the shores of Dubai, the city where the concept for the chair was conceived. The chair investigates the possibilities of robotic 3D printing for designing and producing bespoke furniture.
Manufactured by Nagami, the design takes its shape based on a continuous form, printed on its side with a thickness of just 6mm, using advanced plastic polymers. Designed considering comfort, structural stability, and ergonomics, the chair is a prototype for using advanced methods of furniture design and manufacturing.
