Nature and its structures are always a central theme in Lilian van Daal ’s work. In this 3D printed material exploration the sequence of Fibonacci was applied. Lilian is exploring whether this sequence can be used for the application and improvement of interior design products.
CARBON was an experiment in materials, Housefish used carbon fiber reinforcement to form an impossibly thin concrete shell chair (less than 3/8″ thick). The legs are joined with their in-house developed 3D-printed sawdust, infused with resin for strength.
U.K.-based ceramic artist Anna Whitehouse set a goal to create a new bottle each day for 100 days. By limiting herself to a single form, Whitehouse was able to stretch her creativity to formulate new designs previously unexplored in her practice.
Originally from Mexico City, Gabriel Dawe creates site-specific installations that explore the connection between fashion and architecture, and how they relate to the human need for shelter in all its shapes and forms.
The intention was to discover generation methods that evolve from the surface subdivision, towards volume strategies, in this case cellar aggregation. The design process followed different methods of expressing these aggregation structures, exploring the relationship between negative and positive.
Matter Design Studio has partnered with CEMEX Global R&D to challenge the relationship between the mass of materials and the physical effort of contemporary construction practices, exploring the movement and assembly of heavy objects on a real scale, manufactured using advanced computing.
For the newly established museum Futurium in Berlin, mischer’traxler studio was asked to develop two kinetic projects that deal about interconnectivity within our social environments.
Iris van Herpen designed a ready-to-wear collection for Fall/Winter 2015 in Paris, where she worked with other designers to create an edgy, 3D printed collection that explores terraforming.
Students realized a self-supporting lightweight pavilion made of partially foamed spacer textiles in Frankfurt. With a diameter of five meters and a height of three meters, the pavilion exemplifies the future possibilities of building with 3d textiles.
The cell wall is a student project submitted as the final project for the Dynamic Environment studio, Students: Kishan Desai and Sandy Ferrier, Instructor: Mostafa Alani, Ph.D.
The unbelievably fast KUKA robot faces off against one of the best table tennis players of all time, Timo Boll. Who has the best technique? Who will win the first ever table tennis duel of human versus robot?
Metal origami by studiodror utilizes the Industrial Origami folding technology to form solid QuaDror blocks out of metal sheets. This piece manifests QuaDror strength and efficiency with the use of a single sheet of light material folded into singular, high load-bearing assemblies
Dror Benshetrit has created a new building system called QuaDror that might change the way you see building materials. Unveiled at the Design Indaba conference last week in South Africa, QuaDror is a space truss geometry that has structural integrity and flexible design capabilities.
Japanese artist Harumi Nakashima creates free-form ceramic sculptures that feature organic, yet psychedelic characteristics. Nakashima, mostly known for beautifully-structured, odd geometric shapes embellished with iconic polkadots, works with a level of intricacy that demonstrates the artist’s attention to detail.
Created by belgian designer jonas van put and presented at biennale interieur in kortrijk, ‘buzzijungle’ for buzzispace is a project that presents a reflection of the designer’s vision on social offices, further pushing the traditional boundaries of the workplace.
Stephen Axford is a photographer, who has an international reputation as a specialist in nature photographer with a particular passion in macro fungi photography. In these photos you can see the stunning patterns found in nature.
Fabulous decorative vases by Jennifer McCurdy look like spectacular sculptures. Her carved ceramic artworks impress and delight with original and beautiful designs that test the limits of the ceramic material and turn decorative vases into stunning centerpieces for interior decorating.
Designed by 3D print service Digits2Widgets as a means to demonstrate the possibilities of 3D printing, the “fabric” is quite flexible. So flexible it’s almost comfortable against your skin. It’s like cloth, as it droops when lifted.
Andrew Kudless's work is a kind of geometric adventurism, exploring the functional limits of the materials he works with, making them clamp, slot, bolt, or hinge together in new ways.
“Continua” is an extraordinary work by the Austrian sculptor Erwin Hauer. These are perforated modular panels that result in a cobogó-style work of art to cover walls, separate rooms or even serve as adornments for the home.
One Balance Desk (the layer version) by Peter Qvist consists of 48 sub-elements made of laminated birch veneer plus glass plate.
Here is an example of VB script by Laurent DELRIEU for joining quite smoothly extrusions (minimum of 4). He used circles and rounded rectangles as profile for extrusions, but other shapes could be done too.
This project by Eric Giragosian was part of a research studio conducted by Yasushi Ishida to investigate various methods in finding forms of vaulting shell structures.
The triply periodic minimal surfaces have a great potential for architecture. How to make architecture to be highly moduliable and replicable is always a main concern for architects.
