Joris Laarman uses the latest scientific insights in robotics, nano technology and digital techniques as well as traditional crafts to develop new products. For Laarman a good design starts with a good scientific experiment.
With his graduation project Heatwave he rebelled against the then widespread sober, and functional looking objects, that were so typical for Dutch Design. Laarman made an 'over the top' baroque radiator, because a radiator with lots of folds and swirls just works better in heat distribution.
With his Digital Matter tables Laarman depicts his vision on the aesthetic consequences of futuristic self-assembling materials that are developed at universities worldwide. The Nintendo rococo tables are constructed from voxels, in increasingly smaller size, that are reprogrammable.
