Design for download

Alongside a range of new furniture and accessories, this year at Milan Droog presents the outcome of its Design for download investigation.

By Editor Design.nl / 15-04-2011

During Salone del Mobile in Milan, Droog presents furniture and accessories designed for download by EventArchitecture and Minale-Maeda.

The exhibition includes CNC-cut tables, cupboards, desks, side tables, shelves, sofas and 3D printed electrical outlets, flowers and charms. Droog also presents digital design tools that allow ordinary computer users to easily make functional design decisions, automatically generating blueprints for local execution in various materials.

The tools also enable communication between designer and customer, streamlining and lowering the cost of a custom design process. The presented products have been customized by Droog for its collection.

During this occasion Droog presents the outcome of its Design for download investigation, announcing the coming of the first platform for downloadable design, which will feature curated and open content, easy-to-use parametric design tools and a network of local low, and high-tech manufacturers. The platform will be launched later in the year.

Design for download is an outcome of a project by Droog Design and Mediagilde. For this project it collaborated with consultants Cathal McKee (CMK1), Catherine Jasserand (Ivir), Hans Lensvelt, Institute of Relevant Studies, Joris Laarman and Michiel Frackers. The project was initiated by Droog and made possible by Agentschap NL.
