Assa Ashuach – Bio inspired 3D autonomous design technology
Dear Friends and colleagues,
Invited by the Dyson school of design Engineering, a joint RCA and Imperial college, I will be giving a public talk titled ‘Bio inspired 3D autonomous design technology’
The talk will explore my work and technology developments spanning from the early 2000’s up to date, focusing on 3D design methodologies, digital materials and contemporary manufacturing.
Date & Time:
Tue 23 October 2018
18:00 – 20:00 BST
Dyson Building Library
25 Exhibition Road
The founder of London based Assa Studio is our guest for the first in the 2018-19 series of monthly Dyson School talks. Assa has been at the forefront of exploring the creative potential of additive manufacturing (3D printing) since 2003 with the launch of one of World’s first mass market 3D print products in 2004. By 2007 his designs were integrating sensors and AI with bio inspired mechanisms and forms to produce award winning work and high profile gallery shows and exhibits, including at the Design Museum and Science Museum. Assa’s most recent work has been in collaboration with Kyoto University D-Lab, macromolecular and bio material scientists which results in systems demonstrating radical manufacturing efficiencies.
Leading design writer Alice Rawsthorne sums up Assa’s output as follows:
“By experimenting with advanced design and production technologies, the Israeli-born, London-based designer Assa Ashuach redefines both the form and function of everyday products and furniture, while developing a surreal new design aesthetic’
Assa works with major companies including Nike, Samsung, Panasonic, Amazon and the UK Home Retail group. He is also a visiting lecturer at the Bartlett School of Architecture and has taught at the RCA and Central Saint Martins.
Register for what will be a highly popular talk followed by drinks if you are interested in the emerging fields of additive manufacture, generative design, bio-inspired design and 4D concepts.
