I am working with ABB1200 robotic arm not only for fabrication of art and design objects’ prototypes but also to give the machine more artistic soul. We are currently searching for collaborators and applications in both of those fields- fabrication and performative arts to brainstorm about potential applications and events. Contact us if you are interested.
We want to take advantage of the genericness of the robotic arm and try to simplify existing blackboxed industrial fabrication processes or develop new ones. SO far we succesfully worked with rod bending technology but we look closely at others, specially those which we could improve with machine learning algorithms that embed human expertise.
We see the robot as a performer and we also see that that as a challenge.
We develop prototypes for furniture design and art pieces for companies and private customers. We are located in the middle of Zurich city and we are supported with other numeric machines in Fablab Zurich.
We organize educational workshops privately, as well as in collaboration with academic institutions and schools. Please have a look at the list of the events below
We support tech-oriented companies and other institutions during their business events with robotic live shows and demostrations in Zurich and rest of Switzerland. Please have a look at the list of the events below
SHORT TERM RENTALS & ROBOTIC SUPPORT
We are truly devoted to ABB1200 but we can discuss the short term rentals, with or without the implementation service. If you own your machine, we can also support you with our knowledge and expertise.
ROBOTIC ROD BENDING

KIDZARCHI #1 during DRAWBOT
18-19.11.2017, AREA Institute, Paris
Together with the AAn+1 gallery we organize and as a part of DRAWBOT event, we organize a children’s workshop (from 6 years) to draw with a robotic arm and produce their own robotic work!
Generative Design and Robotic Rod Bending
16-19.03 .2017, AAn+1Gallery, Paris
The workshop we organized together with Mateusz Zwierzycki, aimed to materialize a chair designed with help of generative algorithms via robotic fabrication. To design the form of the chair we will go through an intensive course of generative design techniques, k-means clustering, structural analysis and optimization done with the help of Anemone, Galapagos, Millipede and other plugins
ROBOTIC ROD BENDING FOR STRUCTURALLY OPTIMISED SPACEFRAMES
07-13 February, ENSA Paris-Malaquais, hosted by AAn+1 Gallery, Paris
jury: Philippe Morel, Pierre Cutellic, Leslie Ware
This workshop was focused on workflows designed to produce structurally optimised irregular space frames with the use of robotic arm employed for the process of non standard rod bending.
