Organic bookcase called Amheba is driven by algorithm, which contains variable parameters and set of rules. Concept of Topological optimization is used for lightening the structure. Thanks to precise jigsaw logic is possible to decompose and transfer it, anytime. One person is able to carry by pieces and assemble 2,5 meters long structure. Technology of the digital fabrication was used for realization. Whole process was controlled only in computers. Technical documentation was not necessary. Data was sent to the 3-axis CNC machine. Result of whole process is lighweighted structure.

How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?
The change of the shape is possible with the script, same as with the animal.
Is your design influenced by data or analytical research in any way? What kind of research did you conduct for making this design?
Topic of topology optimization was researched. I was looking for other examples in furniture industry, and there is not too much of it.
What did you learn or how did you improve yourself during the designing of this work?
Everything is possible. I reached my goal. Bookcase have about 40kg less then without the optimization. It is stable and functional.
