HygroShape, the furniture that assembles itself

Developed by the Institute for Computational Design and Construction at the University of Stuttgart, the HygroShape is a different kind of furniture, using the natural and intrinsic properties of wood. Once removed from their packaging, the boards that make up the furniture take shape and bend without human intervention. To achieve such a result, the cellular properties that control the shrinkage of the wood are passed through the filter of computer programming. Nature also did its job. The wood in HygroShape furniture bends just like a pinecone when it falls from a tree, losing some of the water it contains. This should make those who are reluctant to assemble their furniture happy.
