Torsion Furniture No.1
Robotic Bend Furniture
The traditional craft of bending has always been a complex and time consuming process in manufacturing, requiring moulding and casting or expert carpentry. There are limits to what can be achieved with these techniques. It´s time to push those limits with 21stcentury innovation.
Benedikt Stonawski investigates the process of robotic thermoplastic bending. This proves to be a highly versatile way of creating complex curves. He showcases what is possible in ‘Torsion Furniture No.1’, highlighting the creativity and aesthetics of modern automated furniture production. These are products that would be very difficult to make using traditional methods. It is sleek minimalism with a playful baroque ornamental twist in the details.
The pieces are made a 100% of Corian(DuPont) robotic bend strips and plates, handcrafted fitted together. This No.1 collection (Chair, Coffee Table, Side Table) is a limited Edition to the Rossana Orlandi Design Exhibition.
