Welcome to the CodedMatter Lab

CodedMatter is a multidisciplinary design and research lab. We are a team of industrial designers, textile experts, computer scientists, architects, and engineers.  The lab is a hub for groundbreaking research in the field of Computational Fabrication. We explore the correlation between computational design and digital manufacturing in the context of personalization and customization of products, focusing on textiles and close-to-the-body products.

Our goal is to invent new digital manufacturing technologies and establish new design workflows that will unlock design spaces and enable a future of customized products made on demand and manufactured domestically.

Digital fabrication equipment at the lab includes:

    • STOLL ADF 530 Ki Bc W – Industrial digital knitting machine
    • TC2 digital weaving machine
    • Raise 3D pro2 3D printer
    • FlashForge Creator 4S IDEX– industrial 3D printer designed for flexible materials
    • UR5e – Collaborative robotic arm

CodedMatter is directed by Yoav Sterman. The lab is part of the Industrial Design track at the Architecture and Town Planning faculty at the Technion.
