He recently presented his project in Furniture Design and Digital manufacturing in collaboration with Juan Esteban Vallejo and Vaneza Caycho. The project is a proposal of furniture for public spaces at the National University in Medellin, recognizing the potential of generating unique design objects that fit the specific needs of users, through the implementation of technologies for parametric design and digital fabrication. All projects were modeled using Rhinoceros 5.0 and its plugins: Grasshopper and RhinoCAM.
