We designed the Mangrove table for Sayrach´s house collection. The marine world is the main source of inspiration and Mangroves are trees that grow in environments where the water contains high concentrations of salts and water levels are regularly changing. Growing where the substrate is unstable, Mangroves have developed an architecture of complex roots that rise from the main branch producing flying structures. This fractal structure has been studied and simulated computationally for the design of this 3D-printed table.
