The MINTA modular structure system by Orsi Orban reinterprets weaving methods with a technological upgrade. Orsi Orban translated the art of weaving into a modular multi-layered surface. Using 3D software and laser cutting, the unique method creates customizable designs.
The only parameter for this design printing is that the material chosen must have a certain amount of flexibility and tensile strength to replicate weaved products adequately. This led to the creation of specialized wooden laminates and textile laminate. Once printed, the woven pieces must be hand-assembled to create various shapes and objects. The first project to come out of MINTA was an installation telling the story of metamorphosis between the terrestrial and underwater worlds. The mediums chosen for the project were architectural structures, product design, and fashion.
