Ernesto Pastore’s recent work, Conchita, is a computationally designed chair inspired by bivalve seashells. Ernesto’s work is often inspired by the growth processes and efficiencies found in nature, resulting in sculptural, yet functional, designs.
Designed with Rhino and Grasshopper, Conchita was fabricated with a combination of digital fabrication and craftsmanship.
