Ždo furnitureŽ is a parametric furniture system based on intersections or ‘nodal points’ made from standard steel tubes laser-cut to shape. The form of the furniture is not fixed but rather defined by a set of rules. Within these rules specific parameters can be adjusted to produce the final geometry of a piece.
Entirely bespoke forms can therefore be created according to customer’s individual preference. The exact profiles of these nodal points are calculated for precision fabrication by a 3D lasercutter. Akin to a 3D-puzzle, these complex geometries are then assembled and welded together, which allows infinite variety in the form.
