This Desk Is Made Out of Steel Rods, Computer Models, and Algorithms

It looks more or less like you would expect an algorithm-designed desk to look

Stefan Bassing, a designer and tutor at the Bartlett School of Architecture, created this futuristic-looking table out of clusters of copper-plated bent steel tubes, arranged in furniture components by a digital model. "The project tries to establish a new relationship between digital design and digital and analog fabrication techniques, developing a digital craft that goes beyond the limitation of scale and size of technologies – for example 3D printing – while still achieving objects of complexity difficult to achieve and derive from traditional fabrication techniques," Bassing told Dezeen. That all seems pretty involved, but however it did it, that computer did a real nice job of designing this desk.
