DESIGN & TEST FASE
We have finalised the design at last! The initial design concept was focused on a very pure application of topological optimization; this particular technique was employed extensively early on in Joris Laarman Lab’s pioneering Bone Furniture collection. The software is programmed to reduce the required material to a minimum when generating the most efficient shape for a specific task – just as a bone will optimize itself in nature.
The Bridge design employed Autodesk’s Dreamcatcher software in collaboration with the engineering expertise of Heijmans.
