Swarm is a series featuring a chair and vases with surfaces composed of aggregates of the same material. Their organic form is generated by many short steel wires being absorbed into the structure by magnetic force.

The steel wires have a diameter of 1.2 mm and a length of 15 mm. The orientation, density and overlapping of the steel wires are controlled by magnetic force and interact with each other. Also, since there is no single pattern, a unique and complex shape is created. Rather than simply designing shapes, we are utilizing magnetic force to design a process that creates shapes.
