  • Catalogue Essay

    A fractal structure is a geometry that can be split into parts, each of which is approximately a reduced-size copy of the whole. ‘Fractal.MGX’ table is based on growth patterns seen in nature that can be described with mathematical algorithms. At the base of three main stems split into smaller and smaller branches, becoming more organized until they become a dense, regular grid at the top. Produced by the leading global innovator in Additive Layered Fabrication, Materialise, this table uses a process resulting in the ‘printing’ of three-dimensional structures from a computer generated model. Impossible to produce using any other manufacturing technique, ‘Fractal.MGX’ table reinforces the inherent bond between nature and mathematical formulas.

    ‘Fractal.MGX’ table is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
