suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
dia09.1: This was a one-week creative workshop for 35 students of different academic years, and who were enrolled in the Interior Design Course at Istituto Europeo di Design (IED). The main purpose of this workshop was to provide a heterogeneous group of students with the basic rules and tools for them to better understand, share and control the use of manual and digital technologies in the creation and experimentation processes.
The workshop objective was to produce an interesting and complex 3-D texture based on the repetition and distinction of a single piece and its variables. For this purpose, different cutting and folding strategies were used: the cutting variations of the pieces, as well of their heights and positions, were linked to a shade of green.
The workshop project was performed manually (manual parametry), yet by using the same rules, it is possible to be produced digitally (with parametric sofwares and laser cutting strategies).
