Joris Laarman Lab: Design in the Digital Age
Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX

June 17 - September 9, 2018

Furniture generated by smart algorithms, the world’s first fully functional 3-D printed steel bridge and a 3-D printable Makerchair that can be downloaded from the internet. These are but a few examples of the ingenious oeuvre of designer/inventor Joris Laarman, who works at the intersection of design, art and engineering. Organized by the Groninger Museum, the Netherlands, the exhibition will make its U.S. debut at Cooper Hewitt and travel to the High Museum of Art in Atlanta and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
