Nervous System took inspiration from the shapes and patterns of nature to create an app that lets users design their own “cellular” wooden coffee tables. Once a customer is happy with their online design, Nervous System uses a CNC router to carve it out of plywood. The Inhabitat team stopped by their booth at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) this week for a look at their first official prototype and we have to say that it’s pretty darn cool!
Nervous System is a generative design studio that combines elements of science, design, art and technology to create one-of-a kind interiors. This DIY, bio-inspired app is one of their newest hybrid babies. Cut out from plywood using a CNC router in their own studio, the resulting wood table base looks just like a network of cells. Larger holes are filled in with glass panels while smaller holes are left empty, creating an organic feeling.
