This Paramertric Design video is about Somerville MA’s Jewelry, furniture, and lamp design studio, Nervous System, creates software to allow you to create your own.
In this parametric video watch how Under Armour uses new generative design technology to drive innovation and create the world’s first 3D printed performance athletic shoe in the highly competitive athletic wear market.
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.
Is your apartment filled with so many furniture it is difficult to move around?
Buitink Technology supplied and assembled a textile facade for the renovation of Markant in Uden. Buitink Technology cooperated with Herman Hertzberger. The textile facade is made of two membranes, each about 70 m long and 6 m height, tensed all around inside an aluminum structure.
If the ongoing tech revolution has taught us anything, it’s that people want flexibility and high adaptability, and that mindset has affected all aspects of our lives. So, it seems that the next logical step is to make our buildings flexible enough to suit our needs.
In this parametric design video find out how we are using the BigRep ONE to 3D Print large scale furniture in one piece. Our 3D Designer Beatrice Müller is using the BigRep ONE to 3D Print Large Furniture, almost in one piece, only adding the padding afterwards. Firms across industries use BigRep’s large-format industrial 3D printer technology to reduce costs, develop better products and get to market quicker.
Researchers have created a series of 4D-printed plastic objects that fold themselves into predetermined shapes when heated, which they believe could be scaled up to create flat-pack furniture.
Architect Roberto Rossi has completed a house in northern Italy that can rotate 360 degrees. Balanced on a central pillar, the octagonal house can be mechanically rotated in both directions to give its owner varied views. The rotation is also used to direct the house’s solar panels towards the sun.
This parametric design video is about Poetic Kinetics; a studio that specializes in larger than life sculptures, many of which bring new life into public spaces around the world. Their most recent installation in St. Petersburg, Russia resembles a firebird, whose tail and wings span over 32,500 square feet.
Deployable structure composed of smart materials based actuators can reconcile its inherently conflicting requirements of low mass, good shape adaptability, and high load-bearing capability. This work describes the fabrication of deployable structures using smart soft composite actuators combining a soft matrix with variable stiffness properties and hinge-like movement through a rigid skeleton.
Nervous System is a design studio that works at the intersection of science, art, and technology. We create using a novel process that employs computer simulation to generate designs and digital fabrication to realize products.
The charm of a mysterious desert that captivated visitors, revealing its treasures to them. This was the spell cast by Kuwait, a small Middle Eastern State that successfully meets the challenges intrinsic to an environment so apparently barren, told in a majestic Pavilion located on the Decumanus between Germany and the United States. At the …
NASA is using origami to build a giant star blocker, in hopes of imaging distant worlds. “Origami, the Japanese tradition of paper-folding, has inspired a number of unique spacecraft designs. It’s little wonder that it fascinates NASA engineers: origami can seem deceptively simple, hiding complex math within its creases.”
In this parametric design video you can see VT Pro Design’s Kinetic Wall. Getting up close and personal with VT Pro Design’s Kinetic Wall at the first of the Future Forward events in New York City, we check out how this “hybrid” living wall, inspired by the all-new Prius’s eco-heritage, springs to life
The object of this parametric design was to produce an Automata that was inspired by the work of Reuben Margolin. All components were hand made the aim was to recreate the reaction of droplet as it impacts a body of water
Compilations of ten materialized artworks by legendary Zaha Hadid (1950-2016) across the planet.
Since its first participation in a Universal Exhibition (Philadelphia in 1876), Mexico has always delivered an impressive pavilion that captures the imagination. The fundamental theme of Expo Milano 2015 is sustainability, being as much a driving principle for feeding the world’s population, as a criteria for architectural design, in terms of eco-friendly materials, ease …
A Parametric Design video about Mechanisms for Design, University of Pennsylvania PennDesign class
This is a video about bridging parametric design with craft through algorithmic modularity. The digital design space, unlimited by its virtual freedom, differs from traditional craft, which is bounded by a fixed set of given materials.
These amazing parametric designs are a Kinetic art, Perpetual motion and a Marble Machine designed by veproject1.
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.
This experiment is the Chladni plate experiment. designer used a tone generator, a wave driver (speaker) and a metal plate attached to the speaker. First add sand to the plate then begin playing a tone.
In this parametric design video see how 3D Systems’ Janne Kyttanen utilizes the complex, optimized structures found only in nature with his latest creation: a 3D printed lattice structure lounger chair. Created in a single print on the ProX 950, this lounger represents the perfect marriage of form and function.
