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.

Mauricio explora novas aplicações para a bucha vegetal, que é geralmente associada ao esfregar as costas no chuveiro e constantemente é confundida com um pepino do mar :) Bom, a bucha é na verdade uma planta de videira tropical de crescimento rápido da família Cucurbitaceae - uma família de plantas que consiste em muitas abóboras diferentes, melões e cabaças. Uma adorável surpresa ter visto este projeto no DesignBoom. Kinematics - System for 3D printing complex, foldable forms / by @nervous_system. Developed by Nervous System, Kinematics is a system for 3D printing that creates complex, foldable forms composed of articulated modules. The system provides a way to turn any three-dimensional shape into a flexible structure using 3D printing.

The system combines computational geometry techniques with rigid body physics and customisation to take large (flexible) objects and compress them down for 3D printing through simulation. The process begins with the form design of the desired object. The surface of the form is then tessellated with a pattern of triangles. Finally, the design is compressed via a simulation so it fits into a 3D printer.

Kinematics is Nervous System’ first application that is written purely JavaScript. The project also uses a JavaScript NURBS library that they’re developing. The simulation portion of the Kinematics project happens outside the browser. Kinematics | Project Page | Process Page | Products by Nervous System. 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.

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.

Hopping in sync Each leg sports a curved strip of 10 to 12 gear teeth that attach to the trochantera on the insect's legs. A baby planthopper in the genus Issus. Gears are for kids. 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. " (Click the images below for full sized images) The intriguing material can be made from plastic, leather, paper, or wood, and has applications in everything from fashion to architecture.

O artísta e designer gráfico Jeremy Kool começou um novo projeto chama “The Paper Fox“. O objetivo é criar um livro infantil de histórias, interativo e que sejam lidos em Ipad e Androids. O livro que irá ser lançado em 2012 já tem seu primeiro esboço completo. É realmente muito criativo, inovador e muito inspirador. O estilo de arte é bastante singular, é 100% criado digitalmente, mas feitos para olhar como se fosse papel ou origami. Sensacional! Veja o vídeo: O legal é que para financiar esse projeto, Jeremy vende posters de alta qualidade e até mesmo bottons com os personagens do livro e algumas ilustras também! Curtiu? Agata Yamashiro Fundadora e editora-chefe do blog Des1gn'ON, tentando inspirar e ajudar outros designers a crescer nesse mundo criativo.

The beehive structure and open balconies imply that privacy may not be the highest priority for guests at the resort. 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. Bjarke Ingels said that: “Our design is driven by an effort to maximize the enjoyment of the abundant natural qualities of Albany in The Bahamas: the landscape, the sea and the sun. A honeycomb façade functionally supports the pools making them sink into the terrace floor and provides spectacular sight lines while maintaining privacy for each residence.

Drawing inspiration from its coastal setting, the hexagonal design evokes the natural geometries you find in certain coral formations or honeycombs.” Images by BIG. Ghostcube. Adeus, gesso! Estudante cria acessório que acelera cura de ossos quebrados - Saúde. Por Redação em | 21.04.2014 às 15h40 - atualizado em 22.04.2014 às 10h09 Se você já teve "a sorte" de quebrar um braço ou perna, com certeza deve ter passado pela experiência de ter o membro engessado por alguns dias ou semanas para que tudo voltasse ao normal.

Há quem goste de colocar o gesso para deixar outras pessoas rabiscarem, mas muita gente acha a sensação bastante incômoda. Mas e se em vez de gesso você usasse um acessório feito a partir de uma impressora 3D? Esse é o conceito do Cortex, um periférico de plástico que substitui o gesso tradicional por uma cobertura braçal toda vazada que, além de ser mais leve e livre de odores, dispensa todo aquele processo de engessar o braço e ainda permite que o usuário fique com o membro reto, sem precisar dobrá-lo. O projeto foi anunciado em junho do ano passado por Jake Evill, estudante da Victoria University of Wellington, na Nova Zelândia. O molde é impresso em terceira dimensão a partir de um raio X do osso quebrado do paciente.

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). 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. The Multithread process adapts the joint for asymmetric foces, adding support where required by twisting the joint or increasing its mass. Tubes are CNC-cut to length to connect the finished joints before the base is painted to illustrate the forces at work, with yellow denoting areas under most stress.
