The AI.MGX stool was created with a digital code that used artificial intelligence that mimics the biological structures and mechanisms of bone.
Assa Ashuach completed his B.A. at the Bezalel Academy of Art & Design in Jerusalem and his M.A. at the Royal College of Art, Design Products Department, in London.
Assa’s early designs were some of the first to be 3D printed and distributed in a mass market; for instance, Red Dot Award-winner OMI.MGX light for Materialise and the Osteon chair, the first laser-sintered chair to use artificial intelligence microstructure optimization in 2003-2004. Exhibited in many international museums and galleries, his experimental self-production objects are included in many public collections. Besides his practice, Assa is leading the M.A. Design Course at the CASS School of Art, Design & Architecture as well as a guest practitioner at Central Saint Martins in London.
