Starlings Table: generative process for Joris Laarman Studio
Joris Laarman Studio commissioned Michal Piasecki to develop a generative process for their Starlings Table project. The 3d printed piece of furniture was on show at Friedman Benda gallery in New York between March 4 and April 10, 2010.
The process consisted of a 3d flocking simulation based on the Reynold’s boids algorithm. User of the software could freeze the flock at any given moment. If the spatial arrangement of the boids was satisfactory, they could initiate the latter part of the process, which took the arrangement data to generate an stl file valid for 3d printing. The table was manufactured by Materialise, using stereolithography and nickel plated.
