About this artwork

Patrick Jouin’s kinetic design was the first piece of furniture created with Belgian design company Materialise’s Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), a rapid prototyping technique that produces three-dimensional objects from a computer model. Jouin digitally “printed” ONE_SHOT Stool in three dimensions from polymer powder fusedtogether and hardened with heat from a laser beam. The work emerged from the printing process in the folded position, fully formed and ready to use. ONE_SHOT Stool features 35 hinges, 12 movable legs, and an integrated handle on the seat to allow for easy opening and closing; with a simple twist of the hand, the cluster of rods transforms into a small, functional, aesthetically strong seat.
