Crease, Fold, Pour: Advancing Flexible Formwork

Crease, Fold, Pour is an exploration into the processes of casting concrete within flexible formwork. Aided by digital fabrication tools and algorithmic modeling, their research proposes a new method of casting freeform reinforced concrete geometries with the use of folded thingauge plastics as semi-rigid formwork.

Steel Tube Bending

Today, robots can shape pipes however one wishes—and Austrian designer Thomas Feichtner, together with Thonet and tube bending machine manufacturer BLM, has set out to explore the limits of present-day bending technology.
