Roots of plants have been directed to fill out a form on different nutrient mediums over a period of time. After filling out the form completely, similar to a flower in a too small pot, it is then removed and a root shaped like a table or a chair is left. 
The material wood, in this case root wood, is already being shaped during its rowth phase, unlike the usual procedure of working wood physically. In a long-term experiment - that will be going on for years - trials will be observed in a measure of 1 by 1. Result out of this will be the "root chair".
