The Sectionimal Table is Made from Numerical Manipulation

It is always interesting to learn how designers create and form the plans for their designs. In the case of the Sectionimal Table by Chilean digital design and fabrication studio gt_2P, a software program called SECTION was used.

The Sectionimal Table is part of series of parametric furniture that was created using SECTION, which takes information about the materials and desired characteristics of the end piece to create the parameters for it. Essentially, it optimizes the design using algorithms that integrate design and digital fabrication. While the whole process sounds confusing, the outcome is obviously spectacular, as you can see from the Sectionimal Table.
