Iterative Parametric Tables for Studio 4D by Demiurge LLC


Local interior design firm Studio 4D contacted Demiurge to design and produce a series of 3 tables inspired by boulders. Demiurge took the opportunity to show off our parametric design and production capabilities.

Our designer began by working with Studio 4D to define a height and width for the tables, a bounding box within which each table would always fit. Using Grasshopper for Rhinoceros, we programmed a simulation which would alter a basic rectangular form by adding random facets at different points on the table. The design software was set to produce one table for every second the simulation was running, enabling us to produce as many iterations as were necessary to find visually appealing forms. The simulation was started and a series of well over 300 tables was generated to start with.

"Demiurge LLC has been a long time McNeel customer and recently upgraded to Rhino 5 - the products you produce are an integral part of our ability to produce high-quality projects on budget and on-schedule".
