What if object designs could react to make use of locally abundant material?
RCA MA Project
This project presents variations of a lamp design that has adapted to make use of different offcuts from a local metal workshop. If manufacturers could scan and digitise their material offcuts, object designs could automatically update to utilise locally abundant material, reducing the amount of offcuts that become waste and leading to more sustainable products. Joining parts are 3D printed and sent to the customer with the finished offcuts as a kit.
