OTF Projects: PNEUMorphosys 0.2

PNEUmorphosys 2.0 is a CNC formwork system based on the use of pneumatic force. Different air pressure is applied individually to a series of elastic pockets that shape an elastic membrane inside of which the material is poured. As opposed to traditional formwork, that produces a great amount of waste (each shape = new mould), PNEUmorphosys can be used to produce multiple variations without any additional fabrication process. The digital control allows the use of different design or performative inputs and at same time helps the material distribution, using the pneumatic force to push the material trough the membrane.
