Parametric Bookshelves, uses a Maya script to achieve a formal exploration of new configurations of the same bookshelf. In this way each customer is assured of a unique configuration. Parametric Bookshelves develop and produce an infinite number of unique pieces, tailored to the customer's requirements, using a single model. Each element composing Parametric Bookshelves is defined by three attributes affecting Parametric Bookshelves configuration. Each customer introduces data (length, height, preferred colors) and the parametric system responds by automatically changing some of the attributes (depth, thickness, color saturation).
Each Parametric Bookshelves is provided with a code as a customer warranty of the uniqueness and originality of the piece. The application of a large number of iterations to a limited number of rules leads to a level of formal complexity and sophistication which it is impossible to obtain from traditional processes. The vision is not only to customize a piece, but also to allow people to build their own environment.
Parametric Bookshelves was presented at the Young Talent Selection by Giulio Cappellini at the Temporary Museum for New Design During Milano Design Week.
