Fractal Table by Platform Wertel Oberfell

Fractal Table by designers Platform Wertel Oberfell with Matthias Bär mimics fractal growth patterns found in nature.


The rapid-prototyped table features trunk-like legs that divide into ever smaller branches and form a patterned top surface.


The project was created in conjunction with rapid manufacturing company Materialise.MGX.


Here's a bit more information from the designers:


Project title : Fractal Table

Client: Materialise.MGX/Belgium


Project Description:

Fractal Table is a table piece which derives from studies into fractal growth patterns. Treelike stems grow into smaller branches until they get very dense towards the top. Fractal Table, developed by Platform Wertel Oberfell together with Matthias Bär, is impossible to manufacture unless rapid prototyped.
