This project explores the domains of futuristic aspects in the world of design, such as parametric shapes and augmented reality. Its minimalistic presence of a sculptural element gives way to limitless visions, through digitally-added content.

AR intriguingly acts where the two paradigms come into contact by enhancing the objectivity of our experience before crossing borders to virtual reality. Created by Alkanoids on their proprietor platform ARIA, the application playfully explores the theme of facets and shapes.

The suspended wooden sheet is fabricated through a specialized system that produces 3-dimensional hard sheets from flat composite panels. The technology, patented by WOOD-SKIN®, permits the single panel to fold along virtual hinges, similar to Japanese origami. These digital lines are entirely programmable with 3D software, making it a hundred percent customizable. The visible layer of the composite is available in several materials, colors, and textures.

Parametric Surfaces pass across a message that is basic and easy to understand. However, at the same time, it is eye-opening and responsive to many contexts.
