DNA furniture designs by Tjep – extraordinary and amazing
At this year’s furniture fair in Milan, the Dutch designer studio Tjep very strange pieces of furniture are shown, the shapes and sculptures of which are based on the human DNA code. These exhibits can be viewed in Ventura Lambrate in Milan.
These extravagant-looking designer items were produced by the Netherlands-based company Dutch DNA Tjep. A specially developed software was used to generate them, which developed patterns based on the human genetic factor and then converted these patterns into individual pieces of furniture.

Creating a DNA card with the hereditary factor patterns is not an easy task, this is what the Dutch dancer Giulia Wolthuis, whose father Eric is the founder of Dutch DNA, dealt with. “The process begins with a simple and very easy to implement test, which is usually done by the police or when you need to determine maternity / paternity”, explains Tjep founder Frank Tjepkema.

After the analysis in a laboratory in Holland is completed, the data is added to a program, then the lines and the 3D shapes come. “We visualize the genetic markers and create the final shapes”.

Of course, a genetic pattern has been created for a single specific person, so the individual pieces of furniture are very personal. Wolthuis says the experiments have been very successful so far, the “Darwin” glass plate and the CNC router have proven that Tjep Studio is on the right track in terms of research. Both pieces are lacquered – the glass top in white and the torus sculpture in pink, and they have received huge acclaim in the designer world.
