Designer Ammar Kalo
Material Robotically formed brass
Date 2015
N-Bowls are the result of conflating concepts of traditional craft with processes of advanced robotic fabrication. The aim was to address issues like tacit material knowledge, craftsmanship, and through a contemporary lens. N-Bowls intentionally steers away from the perfection of mass produced objects and embraces its imperfections. Tool marks are celebrated throughout the object and recall the qualities of handcrafted objects.

A vast array of unique design iterations can be generated through the parametric design workflow setup for the project. The surface textures are the outcome of the robotic forming toolpaths. Vertical textures add a unique aesthetic, yet more importantly, play a performative role in supporting the piece’s perimeter.

The N-Bowl is in the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection.
