When it comes to the 3D printing of furniture, we have seen several companies and individuals try and come up with products that are both attractive to the eye, and sturdy enough to hold up to everyday wear and tear.

We recently reported on a company called Drawn which has 3D printed several unique furniture pieces. They aren’t the first to try and conquer these endeavors though. For a couple years now, a Dutch man named, Dirk Vander Kooij, has been 3D printing a large variety of furniture pieces. Vander Kooij has printed everything from chairs, to lamps, to vases, to tables and more. His designs are seen as revolutionary to some within the industry.

Vander Kooij has informed 3DPrint.com that he has recently released two new products, the RvR chair and the Fresnel Light.

RvR Chair

RvR Chair

The RvR chair is a very eye appealing piece that costs 357 EUR. By looking at the chair, you would not realize that it was 3D printed. This is because of the unique technique that Vander Kooij uses. He doesn’t simply 3D print the chair in one single back and forth motion like you would see with most 3D printed furniture. Instead he allows his 3D printer to print in many directions, creating unique looking results. When printing is complete, this chair weights approximately 8 kg.

The other product that was just released by Vander Kooij is his Fresnel Light. It is inspired by the Fresnel lens, that was developed by French physicist Augustin-Jean Fresnel for the use in lighthouses. It too has a very unique design to it. It comes in sizes of 40, 60 or 80 cm, and is priced at 900 EUR.

Vander Kooij has also released several other products in the past few months, including his soap cabinet, a coat rack, the Lenses vase, a Babylon chair, and the Melting Pot tables.

Lenses Vase
This was created for a shopping mall that wished to have a large object in the lobby. It was printed an incredible 3 meters high. The way that it is printed, it reflects the light quite beautifully.

Melting Pot Table
This fascinating table is created from scraps that were left over from other furniture pieces. These scraps are melted down and then formed into these very interesting looking tables. No two specimens are identical.
