2.8.: Bauhausinteraction-Colloquium Summer Special: Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology

»From Science to Design and Back – Theory, Design, and Construction of Mechanical Systems on a Tropical Island« – Dr. Johannes Schönke and Dipl.-Des. Michael Grunwald from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology in Japan we will give an overview of their work and show how science and design can inspire each other.

Dr. Johannes Schönke and Dipl.-Des. Michael Grunwald from the Mathematics, Mechanics, and Materials Unit (Prof. Eliot Fried) at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology in Japan work on the theory, design and construction of mechanical systems. Their tools include applied mathematics, computer visualization, 3D modeling, and 3D printing. At the moment they focus on ring-mechanisms, magnetic couplings, and elastic bands and sheets.

»By progressing from abstract mathematical ideas to design and on to fabricating actual physical objects which can be grasped in one’s hands, we are seeking to obtain a deeper understanding of each system we consider.
In this talk we will give an overview of our work and show how science and design can inspire each other.«
