DNA code is known to assist in convicting and exonerating criminals, determining paternity status as well as identifying probabilities of various diseases. During Milan’s 2013 Design Week, DNA code emerged in a revolutionary new way, embodying the Darwin coffee table. Designed by Tjep Studio for Dutch DNA, the Darwin coffee table personifies real DNA code of Dutch DNA founder’s daughter. Darwin coffee table was created by first mapping Guilia Wolthuis genetic profile that was then translated into a 3-D model form, a production process that elevated furniture personalization to an entirely new level.
The conception and realization of the Darwin coffee table opened a new door for those who look to have a one-of-a-kind piece, allowing the powerful personification of their DNA code and even the joined DNA of couples to be actualized on a stunning modern occasional table. To say that the Darwin coffee table and its individualized replicas is the ultimate “conversation piece” is perhaps, an understatement.
