Dirk Vander Kooij's furniture is inspired by a form created with a 30-year-old 3-D printer. "Older machines were less precise, which means thicker lines but also very little waste of material,” he says. Exaggerated lines have since become his decorative signature and make his digitally crafted pieces "look like handmade rope furniture." Up next: interlocking triangulated pieces that form offbeat lamps, bowls, and flat-pack shelves.
