Patrick Jouin is a passionate designer. For the past 15 years, he and his agency have been exploring the uses of 3D printing.In 2004, his «SOLID» collection, the first series of scale 1 furniture made with this new technology, entered the history and the permanent collections of major museums.

He reveals this year a new working progress research, inspired by nature efficacity: The Tamu prototype.

The result of the dialogue between designer and machine, Tamu is a foldable chair which takes up less space and the least amount of material possible to make.
Dassault Systèmes is supporting Patrick Jouin in his approach and contributing its resources through the 3D Experience collaborative platform, to rise to a new challenge.
