“So how do you grow furniture? van der Wiel created a machine that operates like a reverse press where strong magnets pull the liquid plastic filled with the filings up as the magnets rise. While the bases – which ends up as the seat – remain pretty much the same, the legs are the whim of gravity and physics”.
