Contemporary design methods and processes are shaped by tools and industry related topics such as materiality, mechanics and assembly. These factors influence, if not determine, not just the way the final product is achieved, but also how we think about our emotional attachment to products themselves.
In that framework, our proposal is that if we can develop integrated design, simulation and fabrication, previously isolated, methods into a single workflow, not only can we achieve a more fluid road between ideas and component/products, but also upgrade its potential influence in the public through an adaptability that can be far more customizable than anything we’ve done or even imagined before.
Behavior simulation and digital fabrication triggers and shapes the decision making processes and poses certain fabrication challenges that arrive from trying to bridge the gap between those two workflow processes.
