Nóize chairs byEstudio Guto Requena

movie is by Na Laje Filmes


"Brazilian designers Estudio Guto Requena used audio recorded on the streets of São Paulo to distort the shapes of these 3D-printed chairs. The Nóize chairs combine three iconic Brazilian chair designs with the sounds of the Grajau, Tiradentes and Santa Ifigenia areas of the city. The designers distorted computer models of the chairs with the data from the audio recordings. The resulting designs were then sent to Belgium to be 3D-printed. The original chairs were the Oscar by Sergio Rodrigues, the São Paulo by Carlos Motta and the Giraffe by Lina Bo Bardi, Marcelo Ferraz and Marcelo Suzuki."
