suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Sofia BENNANI & Alexandra SINGER-BIEDER: As part of the researches we made on an innovative material, baptized Straw-k, during our diploma, which consists of the assembly of plastic tubes by autogenous welding, this project was built to demonstrate the material qualities via a scale one installation. We tested the mechanical, lighting and acoustical capacities of the Straw-k and we imagined the full digital fabrication process, from the positioning stage to the melting stage and compared the results between digital and artisanal work.
