CreativeApplications.Net. Novos materiais - a geometria inteligente. EMERGING OBJECTS. Design sustentável com bucha vegetal. Luffa Lab é o nome dado para as experimentações utilizando a bucha vegetal como matéria-prima do designer brasileiro Mauricio Affonso que se formou em Industrial Design no Canada (OCAD University) e depois se mudou para Londres para fazer seu mestrado em Design de Produtos no Royal College of Art. Ainda em Londres, Mauricio se formou em 2013 e teve seu trabalho exposto no Salone Internazionale del Mobile em Milão e no London Design Festival, além de ter sido escolhido pelo Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprises.

Creature with Interlocking Gears on Legs Discovered. Gears are ubiquitous in the man-made world, found in items ranging from wristwatches to car engines, but it seems that nature invented them first.

Creature with Interlocking Gears on Legs Discovered

A species of plant-hopping insect, Issus coleoptratus, is the first living creature known to possess functional gears, a new study finds. The two interlocking gears on the insect's hind legs help synchronize the legs when the animal jumps. "To the best of my knowledge, it's the first demonstration of functioning gears in any animal," said study researcher Malcolm Burrows, an emeritus professor of neurobiology at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. Burrows and a colleague captured the gears' motion using high-speed video. As the young bug prepares to leap, it meshes the gear teeth of one leg with those of the other, like cocking a gun. Enso Lamp by Laokoon Company. Moving textile, moldable lamp: Enso Lamp by Laokoon Company can be freely shaped, thanks to Laokoon, a flexible fabric developed in Hungary by Szentirmai-Joly Zsuzsanna, described as "strips, woven or laced, [that] slide over each other, enabling the formation of unique two- or three-dimensional shapes and forms.

The façade’s openings have a hexagonal pattern that uniquely frames the natural beauty of the Island, while the balconies are deep enough to provide lounging areas, summer kitchens, and private pools. Each of the pools features a transparent side facing the plaza that eliminates the visual barrier between the pool and the environment. Ghostcube. Adeus, gesso!

Há quem goste de colocar o gesso para deixar outras pessoas rabiscarem, mas muita gente acha a sensação bastante incômoda. Chair by Lilian van Daal replaces upholstery with 3D-printed structure. Design graduate Lilian van Daal has developed a conceptual chair influenced by plant cells that could be 3D-printed from a single material (+ slideshow).

Van Daal's Biomimicry: 3D-printed soft seat is designed as an alternative to conventional upholstered furniture, which requires several different materials and processes to create the frame, padding and covers. "A lot of materials are used in normal furniture production, including several types of foam, and it's very difficult to recycle because everything is glued together," Van Daal told Dezeen. The designer began to look at ways of printing structures that behave differently depending on how material is distributed, enabling some sections to be soft and others to be rigid. "I was testing the flexibility and the stiffness you can get from one material by 3D-printing various structures," said Van Daal. "I did lots of experiments with different structures to identify the kind of properties each structure has.

" Multithread 3D printed furniture by Kram/Weisshaar. Istanbul Design Biennial 2012: design duo Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram used custom software to adapt and strengthen the branch-like metal joints of this collection of 3D printed furniture, currently on show at the Istanbul Design Biennial (+ movie).

Multithread 3D printed furniture by Kram/Weisshaar

The Multithread collection was devised using a software application created by Weisshaar and Kram, which can analyse the forces acting on supports for a slab - in this case a table top or shelf - and automatically alter the shape of the joints to enhance their load-bearing strength. The movie above explains that while standard joints work well for symmetrical loads, an asymmetric load places irregular stresses on the joint.
