Starting with the Hot Grandma Chair in 2018, Black Box designed and fabricated a set of chairs with a robotic arm and low cost materials. Hot Grandma chair, fabricated with robotic controlled hotwire at the Embodied computation Lab at Princeton University, on exhibition at Storefront for Art + Architecture June 21 – August 24 2018. The chair fabrication explores uncertainty and iteration across various scales as well as non-linear processes in design and construction.
Spring 2022, advanced students in ARC568 Robotic Architecture Workshop (R.A.W.) completed 3 independent research projects with bioplastic and custom end effectors.
