WOW!house entrance installation for Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour has been designed to create a moment of surprise as you enter the Chelsea Harbour Design Centre
Mandalas are traditional circular geometry used for meditation. They are reflective of a journey that often leads to disappearance and reappearance. To us, it is a beautiful symbol of the circulareconomy.
They are generated parametrically and through digital craft and are part of a wider range of designs that we will be launching very soon with Fab.Pub
The mandala are 3D printed with bioplastic, a mix of fermented sugar and wood. PLA bioplastic is 80% more carbon efficient than conventional plastic and is a cradle to cradle material, in line with the principles of the circular economy.
Our solution is modular and designed for re-assembly, so it can be reconfigured and re-used again. We provide a simple software design tool to help create and visualise different design options. We use Augmented Reality to assemble the designs directly from holograms.
