parametric shelf programming and fabrication for architecture

parametric shelf
Hungarian Design Award finalist 2011
project description


The purpose was to design a wall-kind furniture that can adapt to its surrounding. A curve controlled by its control points can adapt to any kind of geometrical form, this way it became the base of the concept. Technically the parametric shelf is a script which calculates planar rows and columns between two or more curves defined by the floorplan. All the properties of the parametric system can be modified constantly - the distancebetween the horizontal and vertical slabs, the width of the shelf, the thickness ofthe elements and even the two base curve. Therefore the future function and the spacedefine all the variables. The final plan decomposed to its elements can easily be cut bya laser cutter.
