• Avoid, 2016

    Avoid is a 3D printed, rhodium-plated sculptural design that features a complex diamond structure. The form of this piece is influenced by Lie sphere geometry, a geometrical theory in which the fundamental concept is the sphere. In Lie sphere geometry all lines should be regarded as spheres of infinite radius and points in the plane should be regarded as spheres of zero radius. Avoid traverses the boundary between sculpture and furniture, a harmonious union of form and function.
  • Them Romans, 2016

    A mirror-finish bronze sculpture in the form of a triptych. Them Romans is a continuation of Kyttanen's exploration of generative design, an approach in which the designer is the spectator that freezes a moment in time.
  • Metsidian, 2015

    Metsidian represents a moment in time - an eruption that melds two divergent materials together. The prehistoric evolves into the futuristic as an organic volcanic obsidian form transforms into a clean, fluid metal mesh. The result is a compelling metamorphosis; the impossible becomes reality. Metsidian traverses the boundary between sculpture and furniture, a harmonious union of otherworldly form and everyday function.
  • Avoid Light, 2015

    Avoid is a 3D printed circular light fixture featuring an intricate diamond structure. Ultimately opulent, the mirror-finish Avoid is plated with 24 karat gold. The form of this piece is influenced by Lie sphere geometry, a geometrical theory in which the fundamental concept is the sphere.
  • Sedona Table, 2014

    The infamous red rocks of Sedona are a well-known location for spiritual vortexes and mark the birthplace of the first Harmonic Convergence. The unique sandstone formations are illuminated in brilliant shades of red and orange; thousands of years of native design have created the most incredible graphic patterns. To me, this is one of Mother Nature's most brilliant creations and one of the USA’s most inspiring locations. My interpretation of the peaks and plateaus of Sedona takes a twisting turn to bridge the organic and the inorganic.
  • Onitsuka Tiger Shoe, 2008

    A 1.5m long pulsating, glowing shoe created for the Onitsuka Tigerland ad campaign. Inspired by the dense and chaotic city life in Tokyo, I had a vision to create the craziest, psychedelic 3D mash up, overflowing with intricate icons of contemporary Japan.
  • Lost luggage, 2014

    Imagine if everything we needed was scaled down to a digital file and could be reproduced at any location; how would this change our relationship to physical objects? Imagine that design is just data and products can travel through the internet as code, produced on demand at any location. What if luggage was obsolete; how would this change our perception of travel? Send your luggage in an email, travel the world unencumbered and arrive to find your luggage waiting for you at your destination. This future is already within our reach.
  • 1597, 2006

    In 2006 I spent 6 months manually vertex pulling in 3D, collecting a full crate of prototypes as I experimented, and eventually resulting in my 1597 light. Fast forward 8 years and we’ve advanced our technology significantly - we can now easily generate this kind of design through code in just minutes. This design has been integrated into the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Designs in New York.
  • 3D Selfie, 2014

    I call this my own version of the selfie, or putting a new spin on the personalized business card. Nothing and no one is static - we can quickly transform organic everyday objects into extraordinary simulacra of ourselves.
  • Lily.mgx, 2002

    Inspired by the clean and elegant lines of its namesake flower, Lily.mgx was one of the first 3D printed light designs on the market worldwide. Light emanates from each petal, creating a seductive warm glow. This innovative design is a 2005 Red Dot Design Award winner and has been exhibited at and integrated into the world’s leading design museums including the Museum of Arts and Design in NY, MoMA, Design Museo Helsinki and Hangaram Seoul.
