The EigenChair project ponders upon strategies and concepts of designing by using information technologies. What are the potentials of data driven design? How can we think about objects once their materiality is diffused into indexical sets of data. How can we engage with objects once their models take an abstractly modular form that is open for infinite manipulation? For such an understanding of design, the emphasis is no longer on the creation of physical objects, but on conceiving meta-objects in the possibility spaces. Furthermore, data driven design enables us to manipulate an abstract object’s ‘resolution’, and to render it as an entire population of unique instances, instead of dealing with one ideal object. Yet how do we get such systems of abstraction to relate to the real world? Information technologies have opened up a number of new ways of thinking about the world and the object, and these novel ways of thinking have by far surpassed the formally simplified or parodized manner of expression in modern and postmodern design and architecture. Based on the intellectual heritage of history and culture in its symbolic richness, design by information technologies can explore a 21st century notion of the object. By instigating new circulations within intellectual heritage, and by accumulating new ways of animating the ‘building blocks’ of that with which we have grown familiar as common we can reinvent our reality.
