Not the least bit 'sketchy'

Front designers' sketch furniture process makes you want to go back to the drawing board

Some time ago I featured the work of Swedish Design studio Front. Well, today I was blown away by their latest venture into "sketch furniture".

Qu'est que c'est you ask?

"The four FRONT members have developed a method to materialise free hand sketches. They make it possible by using a unique method where two advanced techniques are combined.
Pen strokes made in the air are recorded with Motion Capture and become 3D digital files; these are then materialised through Rapid Prototyping into real pieces of furniture."

holy shit right? watch this video and become a believer.

Who knows what this will mean for DIY culture and customizable furniture, but at the very least you can look forward to purchasing some hand drawn furniture.
