Digital design and fabrication technologies such as parametric modeling and industrial robotics through the integration of software and hardware offer opportunities for creative experimentation with new material transformation processes. The concept of deriving artifacts, sometimes driven by aesthetics, sometimes by functional requirements, preferably by combinations thereof, from the interplay of materiality and the formation process is what is inspiring in form-finding. The presented process and case study offer a general approach in thinking and making at the boundaries between physical and digital design.
