Furniture is made with an organic binder material made of sake and sugar.

Furthering the usages of 3D printing in functional art, London-based architect and designer Daniel Widrig impressed all with his Degenerate Chair, a creation printed from a mixture of sugar, plaster and Japanese rice wine. Behind the simple design of the project lies a very complex process. Techniques typically employed in the creation of complex 3D characters for computer graphics were used to shape the overall structure of the chair.

Widrig operated 3D tilling software in order to secure the shape of the chair. Excess material that didn't merit aesthetics were scrapped off before the resulting form was broken down into a high-resolution array of 3D pixels, or other known as voxels. Due to the size limitations of the printer, the stool had to be printed in sections and then assembled manually to create its final shape.
