  • In this research, we explore the material effects that can emerge from the articulation between design, fabrication and material parameters, using a Valcromat Panel (3 layer colored mdf) and a milling machine.
    With this study case, we used a pop art image of Théo to explore depth and color change as well as machinic path. The final result is using a fast way to produce the panel (only 24min of milling time) meanwhile letting the tool trace on the material in an abstract fashion.
