This design studio focus is creating design and constructional methodology for furniture system of Brandthaus workshop based on non- standardized material. Although reusing reclaimed material can significantly reduce the environmental impact in building construction, current design processes are not set up for this shift in thinking. Contrary to conventional practices, designing within the constraints of available material means that geometry and topology cannot be fully pre-determined. Digital detailing offers an opportunity to explore the design space of structural parts, organizing the manufacturing files, and assembly sequences through local geometric differentiation and coding.Emphasis will be placed on fusion of industrial design, structure and fabrication and investigation of connection principles. This studio offers the opportunities to apply computer-based design, structural design, calculation and production methods in an integrated design process on a real 1:1 scale furniture and students have opportunity to develop experience on all phases of project development.
