Disjointed explores how individuality can be incorporated into manufactured design. The project plays with switching the role between user and computer within the process of generative design.

A program I made that trains the user to draw a straight line with the mouse, stripping back computer aided tools. The lines are collected and sorted depending on their straightness, with the most accurate being implemented into the user’s design.

The process highlights the skill of the individual designer as no two lines can be the same. The lines form is dependent on the designer’s dextrous skill when using the mouse in the programme.

No two chairs are the same, giving individuality to the designer but the process of manufacturing is relatively simple as each chair has the same dimensions and is cut on a CNC machine, making a repeatable product that is unique to the designer who created it.
