It is spontaneous.
Our project is not about producing something new. Even if the form is different, the programs, the tools, even the idea of furniture is already existent. What we did in this lab was to show another possible option that is available to everybody. Thus joining the conversation about “the third industrial revolution.”
However, we feel our output, and the general zeitgeist, is far from industrial. It is spontaneous.
It is not based on specific machines or manufacturing processes (we have chosen the ones explained above, but we could have chosen another ones). It isn’t based on long planning processes, but on a reaction to the environment. A combination of our individual beings and input from the outside. The outputs are not even one-size fits all, but a specific object, for a specific purpose in a specific place and time.
They are all reactions to the zeitgeist, and not pre-manufactured ideas. These technologies aim to facilitate our capacity to react. Even though the technologies still have a long way to go until non-professionals can easily use them, here we have built fiscal prototypes so that we understand the new possibilities.
