I will introduce one of my favorite designers Tokujin Yoshioka. His famous Honey Pop chair (above) is just a beginning. He really questions material properties and lets making process determine its form. I love his venus chair (last two images). He basically made a chair out of fibers and put it in a special solution for a few days. Then crystals naturally grow on the fibers, becoming a crystalized chair. Check out more images on his website (http://www.tokujin.com/), or simply google his name.
