Studio Roboto

Studio Roboto

Studio directors: Scott Mayson & Ryan Pennings

Studio partnership with Autodesk and RMIT Architectural Robotics Lab

 

This studio introduces you to robotic fabrication and its application in product design. Roboto will provide you with 3 different fabrication techniques, which you will apply to a product design process through the creation of a series of artefacts.

These techniques are: Robotic

bioMatters

With Gyungju Chyon with a special guest Aidyn Mouradov (Algal Biologist)

After the digital revolution, a new revolution is on the way, and it is not about digital printing but about growing living tissues and cells. Thanks to the development of biotechnology, bioengineering, and nanotechnology, the revolution is not just about changing methods, but shifting our lives in an entirely different

Controllerism: New Expressive Musical Interfaces

Lecturers: Frank Feltham + Josh Batty

Tuesday and Thursdays 1.30pm until 4.30 pm

In the contemporary music and sound art contexts, the expression of a musical phrase or sonic texture requires not only a strong compositional sense, but also high levels of authorship and control over the software and hardware you use. Jammin’ out finger drumming beats, bass

Human+

Soumitri Varadarajan & Robert Eales

The Human+ studio is looking for students keen to develop products and prototype them for presentation to an industry partner. The studio is for students who are keen to develop and push their abilities in a few areas: product sketching, doing CAD and realising designs in 3D (CNC milling, vacuum forming,

Advanced Computer Aided Industrial Design

Tutor: Dr Scott Mayson & Dustin Bayley

In this course, you will extend your knowledge and skills in the digital design and development process to design and produce complex forms, products and assemblies. You will design, revise, animate and evaluate three-dimensional forms within a digital environment including mechanical simulations, finite element analysis, software enabled life cycle

Frank Feltham

Frank Feltham is a lecturer in Industrial Design at RMIT University and the coordinator of the Honours Projects 1 and 2. His work explores the interrelationship between information technologies and the human as a physical and social agent. These design explorations are focussed on movement-based and tangible (or physical) interfaces that extend our traditional screen-based

Gyungju Chyon

Gyungju Chyon is one the founders of interdisciplinary studio little wonder. Her interest in practice, research, and teaching lies in how well-being and energy concerns, in tandem with explorations of natural phenomena, new materials and manufacturing processes, can lead to new relationships between artifacts, environments and humans.

She oscillates between installation art, product design and craft, engaging

Edge 2 Edge

with Ronnie Lacham

STUDIO EDGE2EDGE aims to design “furniture” to initiate a dialogue between design manufacturing and community skills. The main focus of this studio is to develop a stronger understanding of the design process from a concept  to the complete product. Students will research tessellated patterns, design a large scale 1:1 prototypes seating furniture. The design ideas will be
