Part of Ventura Lambrate’s Instant Stories by DMY, Werner Aisslinger presented a vision for the future, when furniture could be grown rather than made.

Each stand was framed by a wooden box mounted on a trestle table, enabling each design to create a little world where anything might be possible.

In Werner Aisslinger’s world: “A chair is born from a steel corset! After the removal of the corset, a unique chair is revealed — truly singular, because nature cannot be programmed to deliver a certain result… (or can it!?)

…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.”
