DESCRIPTION
PLUG – IN is a modular, simple and versatile furniture system based on the computational concept of shape grammars, developed in the 1970s by George Stiny and James Gips at MIT. In practice, a generative shape grammar is a design system, which allows the creation of multiple combinations based on an alphabet of predetermined modules. The Customization is done according to translation and rotation movements. The patterns used were inspired by kinetic art (Optical Art) and give a more dynamic visual language to the whole set. More than one single piece, PLUG IN modules are a contemporary system that allows the user to customize, in space and time, according to their needs. A multifunctional solution for small houses and workspaces.
