Fold project brings together a multidisciplinary research team combining skills and knowledge form mathematics, arts & design, material science and mechanical simulations & machine engineering.
Fold project is divided into four work packages:
WP1 Machinery & folding technology concentrates on tailored design and construction of a pilot line.
WP2 Mechanics, simulations & experimental testing deals with material & pattern performance and optimization.
WP3 Structural and visual design combines research of different pattern variations, experimental testing of the patterns and designing demo materials.
WP4 Product concept design works on developing product ideas and applications with market potential as well as customer experience research.
