I could have spent all day with Robert Dunay, Director of Industrial Design at the School of Architecture and Design at Virginia Tech. He was in a booth full of furniture that TreeHugger calls downloadable designs- created on a computer and sent to CNC (the initials for the almost archaic term Computer Numerical Controlled) tools. He is looking at us through the base of a very elegant cantilevered chair that I think was the hit of the display, but there is a lot more.

Steel coffee table, hard on shins
I am definitely not sitting on this one.
