Oliver van Herp&Sanders Wassink – Student of design Academy Eindhoven – Product 3D
Meeting in Milan with Olivier, a student at the Design Academy Eindhoven, which explains its creation :
Adaptive manufacturing is an ongoing experimenting by oliver van Herpt and Sander Wassink in which they research the relation between the machine and it’s context. They decided to design scripts that distill shapes and textures from external phenomenon. The software then translates this external information measured by sensors into specific realtime behaviors of the printer. You could call it a sensory machine that feels it’s environment and all of it’s output becomes a real-time document of a specific time, location or raw material.
