Bioinspired Lamps Workshop


(Bob McNeel) #1

In the Bioinspired Lamps Workshop, organized by David Torreblanca and the Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana (UPB), the project’s aim was to design lamps inspired by natural forms, specifically plants, through morphological experimentation with Rhino, digital fabrication technologies, and some analogous techniques.

The whole process was supported by RhinoFabStudio. The project methodological sequence was the following: abstraction of the natural forms, product conceptualization, digital experimentation and fabrication.

David is a Chilean product designer based in Medellín, Colombia, with a Master’s Degree in Product Design Technologies. He is currently associate professor and researcher in the Industrial Design career at UPB in Medellín, Colombia.

What is a RhinoFabStudio? A RhinoFabStudio (fabrication studio) is a small-scale digital workshop, certified by McNeel, with an array of Rhino and Rhino compatible software and computer controlled tools and training. These tools cover the various leading-edge industrial methods and materials needed to design, analyze, and fabricate almost anything.
