The Metsidian collection represents a moment in time, an eruption that melds two divergent materials together. The prehistoric evolves into the futuristic as the organic volcanic obsidian form transforms into a clean, fluid metal mesh. The result is a compelling metamorphosis; the impossible becomes reality. The Metsidian Side Table traverses the boundary between sculpture and furniture, a harmonious union of otherworldly form and everyday function.


In creating Metsidian Kyttanen explores alternative methods for combining paradoxical materials. At present we’re able to use explosion welding to join materials that wouldn’t naturally fuse together – what if we could control this force digitally? What kind of hybrid matter could we create?


Kyttanen is a pioneering Finnish designer and conceptual artist, best known for his revolutionary work with 3D printing. He is a digital sculptor, creating multidisciplinary work at the intersection of 3D printing, virtual & augmented reality.


Kyttanen is considered to be one of the most influential designers of his generation.
