mTABLE by Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler

Since 2005 the architects Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler lead the department of architecture and digital production at the ETH Zurich, specialising in the concept of ‚digital materiality‘, the linking of digital data with material and the resulting findings for design and production processes in architecture. The aim is to design digitally generated structural sections in original size via computer-controlled tools and robots in an application-specific way. This doesn‘t just improve efficiency but also creates greater design freedom, going well beyond the usual standards.

mSHAPE is a parametric design project, founded by the two architects, which empowers people to affect the shape of a design object. mTABLE is the first mSHAPE product. It enables people to create their own table using the ordinary software of a mobile phone. The mTABLE is designed by sculpting a surface, choosing dimensions, materials and colours. These parameters are directly transmitted to the computer controlled production facility for the manufacturing of the custom designed mTABLE.
