growing a crystal chair

I’ve seen this on Wallpaper, Dezeen, and Inhabitat and think it is amazing.  Tokujin Yoshioka designed and grew these crystal chairs for his “Second Nature” exhibit.  The furniture and art in this exhibit are formed by soaking a polyester mesh in a mineral solution for a month.  These are all really beautiful pieces and I wish I could have experienced the exhibit in person.
