Design Master Studio at the Institute of Architecture and Media / Graz University of Technology
The aim of the Studio Kronleuchter at the Institute of Architecture and Media was to design an object that utilises contemporary CNC fabrication principles and takes advantage of the manifold features of the material wood. Moreover, the options of today’s LED technology and its capability of being digitally controlled should fundamentally influence the approach. The works had to be fully parametric in design and production as well as interactively operable. To put it briefly, the assignment targeted the question whether an out-of-the-ordinary chandelier could be produced solely in wood.
