Robotica TM takes form at the convergence of two fields – botany and robotics – to coin a new approach to design that crystallises the natural programming in nature with that of robotics within artificial manufacturing.

Design

The design is of a high stool that has 360 degree formal access.

Thus the aesthetic being non directional implies an adaptation of the typology away from furniture and into a new territory of stand alone aesthetic object whereby its function is not immediately intelligiable.

But there is in fact no compromise in its function which despite its ambiguity can perform as a table for placing food on as taken out of the oven as the silicon inserts are heat proof , as a plinth for a sculpture -TV or any manner of ancilliary needs within a home .

Process

The Robotic , polymer dispensing arm allows for a vertical layup , stepping outward or inward to create gradual form deposition.

I have responded to this with an economic vertical structure that rationalises the time versus material versus fusion equation.

Built from a rotational geometry this equation is very effective and facilitates the fusion building of a highly efficient structure akin to natural own estute solutions.

Objective

In working with Nagami i have aimed to start a path towards the creation of unique variable objects-furniture that enrich our space and are competive on price with the products of established , elegant and distinguished furniture brands.

Its a new category that is slightly above the norm in the price of Italian furniture but way below the price in the field of Design Art ; a place not restrained by conventional taste and free to explore without extensive captital investment a serious new positioning for manufacture in the field .
