by Dirk Vander Kooij

The chubby chair exaggerates functional ornamentation as imparted by low-resolution 3D printing. In doing so, the chair evidences the inimitable durability, singularity, and texture associated with the printed medium.

Dirk's house-developed extrusion process expands the capabilities of unlikely source materials.  In the case of the chubby chair, discarded refrigerator interiors are reintroduced as autonomous, indestructible. And, as molten synthetics are squeezed like toothpaste, perhaps even a little humorous.  

The chair’s final form is achieved by bending strata of printed material inward. This simple deviation makes it possible to construct a chair with relatively few strokes of the machine.  

The chubby chair can be found in the permanent collections of the Vitra Design Museum and The Design Museum in London.
