Morph Side Table by Daisuke Nagatomo and Minnie Jan

Home > Winners > #49069


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Morph

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Side Table

INSPIRATION:
Morph side table is inspired by the idea of transformation of traditional paper to future paper technology, which has been visualized by the dynamic contour of morphing shape. E-ink technology, which is primary used for electric paper such as electric books or tag, are currently looking for the new applications especially as a surface treatment. Morph addresses the new possibility of furniture surface, which can be changed the pattern automatically to fit different space or atmosphere.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Morph incorporates E-ink Prism, Electrical ink laminated film, with corrugated cardboard structure. The table top changes the pattern as programmed with very low electricity voltage. The morphing form of curvature symbolizes traditional paper to new generation electrical paper. The basic form is model in 3D program and generate 90 sections to cut with CNC machine, and carefully glue laminated with hand. As a piece of furniture, Morph shows very strong characteristic to transform surrounding atmosphere, yet gently fit with the space.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Started with a digital modeling in 3D software to form the particular shape of Morph, and tested with 3D printed model before the production. 1 to 5 scale model was fabricated upon the final design decision. After all the cutting geometries are nested on CAD file, it was sent to cardboard CNC machine. Total of 90 sheets of unique shape were produced to be assembled into Morph. Each sheet was carefully glue laminated by hand.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project was initiated in March, 2015 and spent two month developing the concept and design. Afterwards, the Morph was introduced at E-Ink workshop conference in Taipei in July, 2015.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Cardboard CNC Manufacturing with hand lamination with paper glue

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Top surface diameter: 41 cm, Bottom diameter: 45 cm, Height: 45.6 cm. 90 sheets of 5mm cardboard lamination

TAGS:
Morph, Side Table, Cardboard Furniture, Digital Fabrication

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Morph is a part of our continuing investigation of utilizing digital fabrication onto cardboard medium. We have worked on several cardboard projects in different scale of furniture to architecture using cardboard material. Morph is inserting a new milestone to this lasting research by incorporating new technology of E-ink.

CHALLENGE:
The most challenging part of Morph was to consider how to incorporate E-ink Prism system with the cardboard structure since it comes with computer board for controlling the electricity to the E-ink and also its switch. The detailed scanning of the E-ink product was operated and translated into digital file. By articulating optimized inclusion system, we followed the exact procedure of fabrication.
