1e1Furniture is not exactly something that immediately pops into one’s head when they are considering what to 3D print next. With that said, the design capabilities inherent in this technology do in fact allow for some incredibly intricate pieces to furnish one’s home if you have money to throw at the wind. Of course, a much larger 3D printer than the typical desktop machine is necessary unless you are making a lounge chair for your pet gerbil.

While there are no major furniture outlets selling 3D printed furniture as of yet, the technique is becoming ever more popular with artists, concept designers, and design firms. One such company which has embraced the art of 3D printed furniture is the France-based Ventury Paris.

“Ventury Paris will redefine luxury through the high Parisian standards in design and material,” states the company. “Ventury’s seal of approval marks every piece of its furniture line. Its commitment to quality and its partnership with best french craftsmasters ensure signature designs graced by the highest-quality, most breathtaking materials.”

The company, which was founded in 2009, has quickly grown its couture line of furniture, and recently has turned to 3D printing in order to do so. The Founder and Chairman of Ventury, Emmanuel Touraine, himself has created some remarkable pieces which could best be described as part architecture, part furniture.

From lamps to lounge chairs to bar stools to upright chairs, Touraine and his company have re-imagined furnishing in ways which could never have been made possible prior to the advent of 3D printing. The pieces which I find the most spectacular two chairs which mimic the architectural flow of Paris’ most famous landmark, the Eiffel tower.

Designed by Touraine himself, the chairs, simply called “Eiffel,” can be constructed using stereolithography 3D printing techniques, which allow for the intricate architecturally complicated designs. If Stephen Sauvestre, the lead architect for Gustave Eiffel’s company, who erected the famous tower, were to design and construct a chairs, these chairs seemingly would it be it. Of course, back in 1889 there wasn’t even a concept for a 3D printer, nor a computer to run it.

Touraine and Ventury Paris’s work doesn’t stop here, though. Below you will find a number of additional 3D printed creations and concepts presented recently by the company.

Ventury’s Organic Functional Sculpture ‘Gaudi’ – Side Table
These tables are designed based on an organic cellular pattern, and are cast in bronze.

Ventury’s ‘Entity’ Lamp
Also designed by Touraine, these lamps are created to reflect the shapes and textures found in nature.

“I liked the idea of using the geometry seen in the eyes of crustaceans,” states Touraine. “This is a complex design that could not have been produced before 3D printing. The result is an exquisite light effect that transforms a lifeless living space into a colorfully lit ode to nature.”
