poster for Projects by Assa Ashuach + Marcel Helmer

Ends in 3 days

The Projects exhibition centres on recent work developed at Kyoto Design Lab during recent residencies by two designers.
Assa Ashuach is a pioneer in the use of additive manufacturing and was D-lab’s 2017 Designer-in-Residence. Assa studied the natural geometrical growth patterns of the bamboo and translated this into producible 3D structures. He created a 3D structural growth algorithm inspired by the bamboo bio-microstructures which took into consideration the limitations of the 3D printing process. On show are the many 3D printed prototypes and developed and the final STEM chair that the process inspired. Marcel Helmer, a communication and interaction designer from the RCA’s Design Interactions course was Kyoto Design Lab’s 2016 Design Associate. His science education design project centred on finding a new way of communicating the qualities of drosophila and their value as scientific tools within medical research and biology.
