This side table comes from the idea of using machines as a digital craftsmen. During my experience at the Art Academy of Oslo I had the opportunity to experiment with cnc machinery and wood in different projects. Thinking about it and observing how people made use of these machines made me reflect about how we were approaching this type of technology.
This furniture is an experiment that intends to go beyond those variables in production related to speed: Making what we could solve easily in a wood workshop, but faster. In this case I wanted to portray qualities that machines can achieve, in an analogous way, similarly to an artisan.
The form's conception comes also from a well-known process in CAD softwares. Certain mathematical approach through geometric subtractions gives the spirit to this piece.
This is my approach to the possibilities of a well "crafted" furniture through the inventive of a field (Product Design) increasingly expanding in the virtual word of creation.
