Data is the building material in the digital age

I have a long admiration for the Bauhaus period, sharing its fascination for craftsmanship and innovation. Designers were given modern tools, which inspired to re-interpret possibilities and pursue new ideas and create a new vocabulary for contemporary products.

The Bauhaus way of learning and exploring is a great inspiration while developing our own new tools like 3D printing in today’s data driven world. Exactly 100 years after Bauhaus, we formed a “digital design to build’’ team with DUS Architects and Aectual to create a novel Bauhaus building, introducing the building movement of the 21st century. Like Bauhaus we also connect our technology and design possibilities with industry partners creating solutions to share with the global community.

‘Bauhaus led to Modernism and mass-production; 100 years later we enter a new era in which we offer tailor-made & personal architecture on a global scale’
Hans Vermeulen, CEO of DUS Architects & Aectual

In the design process we questioned ourselves: What will future living look like? Will every house be built out of data? What happens if we link craftsmanship to new digital possibilities? How can we combine sustainable materials in a smart way?

The TINY [BAU]HAUS is a series of design experiments inspired by new technologies creating a new design vocabulary based on digital craftsmanship. The result is a living space setting with a composition of tailor-made architectural products, using the intelligence of 3D printing to create a present-day ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’. Sculptural walls become shelter, shelving and seating, integrating smart solutions and bespoke materials. The house is made of natural materials with minimum ecological footprint, printed with bio-plastics based on linseed and accentuated with wood and terrazzo. Beauty, comfort and smart production go hand-in-hand. The TINY [BAU]HAUS is an invitation to join, learn and together create new sustainable solutions for the world of today.
