i-M-A-D-E and A2SX have formed a furniture design collaborative centred around producing new, innovative seating prototypes with minimal material waste. Using digital design and fabrication technologies, the prototypes are designed, optimized structurally and ergonomically, and fabricated using digital information.
The intent of this collaborative (between design firm and university) project is to create unique pieces of furniture with minimal waste as a means to create an ergonomically, economically, and ecologically friendly furniture design and to spin the collaborative as a speculative commercial venture for a demanding market.
This seating design process started as sketches by designer Wil Marquez (A2SX) and i.M.A.D.E student intern, Jamie Owens. (thanks)
