Following the example of furniture companies who make 3D models of their furniture available by means of architectural visualizations, Maassen made one of his designs, titled 3D-MC1, available as a free download too. With one exception - it had no analogue counterpart and could therefore ignore rules and requirements, such as gravity and comfort, that apply to real furniture. In his recent film "Alternate Reality Chair", he couldn't resist actually building a 3D-MC1 chair to see what would happen (what the outcome would be).

A move back to craftsmanship in an age where real life starts blending with Second Life.
