SuperFormLab. Kunstakademiets Designskole, Copenhagen. Established in 2011
SuperFormLab provides facilities for experimental and innovative studies of various plastic silicate-based materials, such as ceramics, concrete, plaster, cold glass/ architectural glass. The workshop replaces the former department of Ceramics and Glass at Danmarks Designskole, offering a flexible working environment for students wishing a specific specialization within this field as well as for students from other disciplines, e.g. product design or architecture.
Studies are based on a three-year bachelor program, followed by a two year Master Program
Material experimentation is at the core of studying at SuperFormLab. Hands-on experiences, that allow for new design and artistic expressions to evolve out of a deeper knowledge about material qualities in relation to both new and more classic technical possibilities, notably various digitally controlled technologies. Digital software is equally regarded as a material, that can be explored in parallel to the materials themselves, leading to new forms of expression, whether in product design or used in an architectural context.
