Cutting Edge is a large-scale subtractive manufacturing process that enables the creation of custom furniture. Based on foam-cutting technology, designer Martijn Rigters developed a dynamic frame in which four hot wires can be shifted in place to create varying profiles within rectangular blocks of expanded polystyrene (EPS).
Reminiscent of time-lapse photographs or the motion implied in Duchamp’s Nude Descending a Staircase No. 2, the furniture created by Rigters’ process reveals the many gradual, incremental shifts in geometry that result from the user’s manipulation of the frame profile. The end result is a unique object that records the design decisions made during the process of its fabrication.
