London Design Festival 2016

 

London Design Festival / 17 - 25th September 2016 
 

London Design Festival

 

The London Design Festival was first staged in 2003 and has grown to become one of the world's most important annual design events.

The London Design Festival celebrates the future of design and craft - from digital innovation and scale-modelling to consumer behaviour. 

This year we will be taking part in the festival by way of a series of design talks, along with our partners the Goldsmiths' Centre

You can read full details of each of the presentations we'll be making at the festival below, and you can see the full programme that is taking place as part of the London Design Festival at the Goldsmiths' Centre by clicking here.

Parametric Design for the Furniture & Product Design Industries

Simply Rhino trainer Arthur Mamou-Mani demonstrates the fabrication of complex geometry for furniture and product design. Using Grasshopper3D, a plugin for CAD modelling software Rhino 3D, he couples parametric modelling with digital design to create unique products.

Part of London Design Festival and in partnership with the Goldsmiths' Centre.

Environmentally Led Architectural Design

Architect & Designer Arthur Mamou-Mani shows how to create creative loops between designs and environmental feedback in architecture and interior design and demonstrates how parametric design tools enable designs that adapt and are responsive to their specific environment. Projects such as the Virgin Galactic Eco-Resort are explored to show how the design was grown recursively to react to the seasonal sunlight changes. Arthur’s main creative design tool is Grasshopper. Grasshopper allows for the creation of algorithmic and parametric models and is a plugin for the popular CAD modelling software Rhino3D.

Part of London Design Festival and in partnership with the Goldsmiths' Centre.
