Russian artist and designer Oleg Soroko of After Form created Scate Chair as one of his “Parametric Furniture” collection using parametric design tools and complex algorithms in the Rhino3D and Grasshopper3D software. Scate chair is the first object from Parametric furniture collection made by Oleg Soroko in 2014.
The chair was first point for Oleg Soroko in a long journey to the procedural forms exploration which is still in process. During form finding via generative shape modification he found this clear image of scate and convert it into sculpture/furniture object.
The form of Scate Chair itself is very close to parametrism idea flowing shapes surfaces and curves. As the Russian designer stated this chair is not a regural arm chair and it is more like dominant symbolic object like a tron. The chair object it is comfortable for one or two persons. It is made from birch plywood, cuted by CNC machine and combined with metal bars isnside with separators between sections.
Oleg started his career in architecture. He studied 6 years in Moscow Architectural University and founded his own firm in 2015, that was mostly doing commercial interior design. Now he is concentrating on his personal art projects, that’s are about parametric art and design, that influences a big range of objects, like cars, clothing, furniture ect. Some of the projects, made by Oleg, stays in the concept stage or becomes a print series and some are fabricated by different digital fabrication techniques by CNC machines, 3d printers ect. Oleg is always experimenting with newest technologies and tools like Virtual reality, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, ect.
Oleg is researching different methods of proceduraly generated digital substance, because he believes that this forms will be very popular in future. And he is actively promoting this concept. Name of the concept is After-Form. Oleg is always open to collaboration and he already has a lot of art collaborations with big companies and artists like IBM, Adobe, Olgilvy&Mather, Joris Laarman. The most known Oleg’s project is parametric furniture series. Oleg founded his own manufacture that produces furniture of his design. You can find his objects all over the world, in New Zealand, Canada, Europe, Dubai, Sinapore, at the “New Arbat” – one of the main streets of Moscow, and 65 benches in Muscat international airport in Oman.

The Durotaxis Chair is a fully 3D printed multi-material dual position rocking chair designed by Synthesis Design + Architecture and manufactured by Stratasys. The chair is inspired by the biological process of the same name, which refers to the migration of cells guided by gradients in substrate rigidity.
