Form is Matter
Triply periodic minimal surfaces structures by digital design tools

Architecture and biology teach that the shape affects mechanical behaviour of structures therefore geometry is the basic concept of design, with an ethic responsible and sustainable approach, following the nature’s organic model.

Industrial design may apply formal properties of elementary shapes and basic design rules to manage the “geometrical behaviour” of new structural surfaces.

This research by Michela Rossi and Giorgio Buratti aims to apply digital tools to the design of surface structures that maximise the matter efficiency in the development of  “solid fabrics” with parametric controlled geometry.
