Mathias Bengtsson, the Danish-born, London-based designer recently told Architectural Digest that he is “trying to create an artificial universe where we can grow things as nature would.” And indeed his body of work, despite being inspired by aerospace engineering and fabricated with technologically innovative practices, appears surprisingly organic. He still abides by the traditional architectural process of sketching by hand and modeling in clay. Since starting his own studio in 2002, Bengtsson has deployed lasers, high-tech fibers, and computer programs to design pieces that are at once biomorphic and futuristic, such as a chair patterned after bone regeneration.
