Named after his daughter, Rose, designer Chris Martin faced challenges as a result of it's form and material.
New technologies in industrial production enabled the development of a full-scale 3D print for the very first time. This gave the designers the opportunity to assess the product at an earlier stage of the process than before, resulting in an elegant arm chair.
“At first I thought it would be difficult to design a product with the name Rose, because the name would be strongly associated with the shape of a rose. In the end this product seems like a perfect embodiment of a flower, given it’s petal like features, but that was not thought of in the beginning! The name was, and is still, just a tribute to my daughter Rose.” Chris Martin, Designer.
