Cellular Table by Andreas Hopf & Axel Nordin
by Harry / June 21, 2010
A user-customizable table from Andreas Hopf and Axel Nordin combines user parameters (ie, contour shape and height) in a "genetic algorithm" that they've created to automatically design and produce a table.

The algorithmic cell structure adapts to the user's drawn table contour and chosen height and also takes into account CNC-bending machine constraints.

Hopf and Nordin were looking at ways to "empower designers to discover and apply natural-mathematical morphologies - whilst taking real world functional or production constraints into account at the same time."

The cellular furniture was created at Lund University School of Industrial Design by Hopf and Nordin, supported by Vinnova Sweden and presented at the 2010 DMY Design Festival.
