The Digital Age of Design

I'm so lucky to have such a world-class museum practically in my backyard, and I'm excited to see an upcoming exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston that makes its debut on June 24. Joris Laarman Lab: Design in the Digital Age focuses on a Dutch experimental artist who is creating incredible furniture designs using the latest technology, like robots and 3D printing.

Even though he uses cutting-edge production processes, like digital fabrication and robotics, Laarman says he is most inspired by nature, so his pieces still have a lot of organic beauty.

I'm really intrigued by the 3D printing process and how it can create objects that are beautfiul but also functional for the home.

I love looking into the future of design and finding new ideas and inspirations! If you're in Houston before Sept. 16, be sure to see this incredible exhibit!

Warmly,
