The development for Formtorget incorporates physical models produced by our inhouse laser cutter, that allows investigations of formal prinsiples in regards to aesthetic qualities, seating comfort as well as fabrication logics. The parametric model used enables the production of models from 1:50 to 1:1 to be produced.

Following an earlier proposal, Dsearch developed a design for a series of 30 unique panels used for fences and view obstruction in the Koggens gränd housing project. Using the Voronoi diagram, a digital design trope overly used in past years and these days integrated as an automated function within Grasshopper, the development was focused on achieving different types of transformations of the pattern, creating panels with shifting densities and local variations that encompass house numbers and protective details for security measures.
