Transforming flat sheets of material into beautiful fluid shapes like that above is the result of Victoria University lecturer Tim Miller’s research in design and technology. His CUTform designs are made with innovative laser cutting technology on flat 2D sheets of material, shaping and perforating them into unique chair designs.
His furniture is a result of a four-year research project exploring the “the limits between material, digital technologies and manufacturing processes.”
Miller took part in last month’s Milan Design Week with David Trubridge representing the incredible talent and innovation of New Zealand design. Along with the STRETCHout lounge seat above, his exhibit included an upright version of the lounge chair (DRAWin) and a PULLup stool (see below).
