Using parametric design principles, it is possible to control how the furniture behaves when scaled; the product keeps its functionality and visual balance regardless of how it is customised.
Projects are not defined by decimal units anymore, but by percentages, algorithms and queries. These tools allow to generate 3d model by giving input some parameters. Parametric design.
(the screenshot below is an actual project, as developed in Grasshopper)
Parametric design is a process based on algorithmic thinking that enables the expression of parameters and rules that, together, define, encode and clarify the relationship between design intent and design response.
The ground of parametric design is the generation of geometry from the definition of a family of initial parameters and the design of the formal relations they keep with each other.
In other words, once the customer defines the overall dimensions of the product (width, depth and height), the app generates the complete product.
