Lionel T. Dean continues the Future Factories theme of organic growth with a design that’s in a constant state of evolution. In Holy Ghost, the back and arms of an iconic chair design have been morphed to create a very different view of an everyday object and a new object of desire. Dean has frozen the real time generation of these new forms to create two ‘hard copies’ of the design using Rapid Prototyping technology.
Dean is Designer in Residence at Huddersfield University. Future Factories is a digital manufacturing concept for the mass individualisation of products. Future Factories has had exhibitions in London and Milan. Previously Dean worked as an automotive designer for Pininfarina in Italy, before launching his own consultancy business.
