One of the currently most exciting design studios from Switzerland is coming to visit us! AATB explore the idea of Non-Industrial Robotics: The studio is experimenting with industrial robotic systems such as robotic arms and industrial automation processes. AATB develop works engaging with Human-Machine Interactions through the lens of kinetic and interactive situations. Since 2020, the studio operates a Motion Control service for the film industry: Superposition.
In the context of UN:KNOWN Werkschau 2022 Andrea and Thibault will give a Design-Talk/Keynote on their work across robotics, art and design. On top of that, we can also look forward to a live robotics installation!
