This parametric design video is about: The Hyphae Lamp – a new series of algorithmically generated lighting designs by Nervous System. Each lamp is individually grown through a process based on leaf vein formation. No two lamps are alike.
A parametric design for Metamaterials. Metamaterial Mechanisms is a research project from the Hasso Plattner Institute.A metamaterial is a material engineered to have a property that is not found in nature.
Find out how human bones inspired the Eiffel Tower through the design principle of structural hierarchy.
First inspired by the mysterious and mathematical qualities of a caterpillars crawl, artist Reuben Margolin creates large-scale kinetic sculptures that use pulleys and motors to recreate the complex movements and structures we see in nature.
The fluid geometric form is articulated as a series of alternating CNC milled birch plywood ribs which are pre-fabricated into modular units and spray finished with a clear lacquer. These units are hung on a series of z-clips bolted to the interior wall, and held in place by self-weight.
In this Parametric design video you can see: the Nanoleaf Aurora digital lighting system combines LED color effects with a sophisticated design, easy installation and absolute modularity.
Studio Arthur Casas and Atelier Marko Brajovic won the competition to create the Brazilian Pavilion for Expo Milan 2015, commissioned by APEX-Brasil. We aimed to combine architecture and scenography in order to provide visitors with an experience that would transmit Brazilian values and the aspirations of its agriculture and livestock farming according to the theme …
Manufacturing of a pendant lamp from the collection Swing: lovingly handcrafted by the designers from dreizehngrad
This parametric design video is about Nervous System, a Generative Design Studio. These generative design pieces, discovered by The Grommet, are inspired by the science of nature and created with 3d-printing or laser cutting technology.
In this parametric design video you can watch: Sisyphus kinetic sculpture within 2 foot diameter x 22″ tall, tempered glass-topped metal table (exact size may vary). Stepper motor driven Sisbot mechanism. Metal furniture with wood veneer options for top and sides – birch/maple, cherry, walnut, black. Some assembly required.
The design chosen for the Italy Pavilion is the result of an international design competition awarded by Expo 2015 SpA in May, 2013; among 68 participants Nemesi won the competition with Proger and BMS for the engineering and with Prof. Eng. Livio De Santoli for the sustainability. The Italy Pavilion consists of the permanent building …
This parametric design video is about the future of architecture: 3d printed buildings. 3D printing has the potential to revolutionize the way humans manufacture and build things, from the small scale to the very large. By combining robots with 3D printing, KUKA partner Branch Technology, working with the architects at Gould Turner Group
In this parametric design video: The challenge? A generatively designed chair fabricated with wood & a CNC router. The result? A stronger, lighter, more comfortable chair.
Dutch designer Lilian van Daal claims 3D-printing can replace traditional upholstery techniques to produce spongy-surfaced furniture in this parametric design movie filmed in Eindhoven. Van Daal is investigating alternative production methods for upholstered furniture, which is usually very resource-intensive to make
Octahedron by Alex Fox an amazing woodworking 3D Fretwork, a scroll saw project. In this video you can see the making (Cutting, finishing and assembling) of a geometric plywood sculpture.
This parametric design video was created for the purposes of the postgraduate course “Smart & Bioclimatic Design” at TU Delft, based on a research by Apostolina Karapanou: “Creating a living building, An Approach to Climate Adaptive Skins”.
This parametric design video is about a 3D Printed Concrete Firepit. HomeMade-Modern 3d printed 3 different parts of the fire pit and then made silicone molds of the prints. They used Quikrete 5000 concrete mix in the silicone molds to make the final blocks for the Firepit.
Architecture Design : the UK pavilion at Expo 2010, colloquially known as the Seed Cathedral, was a sculpture structure built by a nine-member conglomeration of British business and government resources directed by designer Thomas Heatherwick.
A team of researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology has developed a way to use 3-D printers to create objects capable of expanding dramatically that could someday be used in applications ranging from space missions to biomedical devices.
Georgia Tech researchers find ways to use Origami as the structural basis for real world applications such as deployable antennas and bridges.
This parametric design video is about Branch Technology and Thornton Tomasetti’s Core Studio creating the world’s largest 3D printed structure for OneCity in Nashville, TN.
In this parametric design video Autodesk research teams explore ways to optimize the design of airplane seat frames in order to reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.
The kinetic sculpture aptly named Pulse adorns the atrium of d3´s Core 4 building. Suspended in the skylight, Pulse brings the entire space to life. Inspired by the pulse of human heart when in motion, at first the individual elements disperse throughout the atrium, imitating the glass-making sands when scattered on the ground.
