Digital craftsmanship.

Catatanku:
Kolaborasi antara arsitek dengan chef (pengguna bangunan) pada proyek ini menarik karean sifatnya equal. Inovasi yang dihasilkan pada proyek ini merupakan hasil komunikasi. Pada presentasinya, si arsitek mengawali dengan cerita tentang para chef dan bagaimana mereka bekerja sama. Ini adalah sebuah metode yang tidak terlalu banyak dipakai oleh arsitek-arsitek di Indonesia.
Arsitek proyek ini memakai metode yang saat ini mulai banyak dipakai arsitek-arsitek di dunia, yaitu fabrikasi dengan computational design. Namun yang menarik 3XN memperkenalkan satu istilah baru, yaitu digital craftsmanship. Istilah ini berarti bahwa bangunan yang berfungsi sebagai tempat riset bagi para chef ini dirancang dan dibangun dengan metode kriya, di mana tiap detailnya diputuskan bersama antara arsitek dan para chef, tapi dibuat dengan bantuan teknologi. Memang tak ada bedanya dengan inti dari fabrikasi, tapi pemahaman 3XN ini menarik, karena dari situlah kita bisa tahu jika ia benar-benar menangkap esensi dari pemakaian fabrikasi pada arsitektur yang ia rancang, yaitu arsitek terlibat langsung dari awal sampai akhir proses desain dan konstruksi (seperti seorang pengrajin), tapi tidak dilakukan dengan tangan, melainkan dengan mesin.
Di proyek ini terdapat 249 lembar veneer, 5283 bagian-bagian, dan 11472 potongan.

Konsep & objektif dari arsitek:

The Client’s Brief
As the number one ranked restaurant for three years in a row, the expectations for creative innovation and optimum performance at NOMA are higher than ever before. 3XN’s innovation unit, GXN, designed a unique ‘experimentarium’ and office that would strengthen the organizational life and teamwork, while also inspiring the chefs to take their skills even further in the evolution and development of Nordic cuisine.

Nordic, Raw and Playful
The NOMA Lab is connected to NOMA situated in a former harbor warehouse on the national registry of protected buildings. The tight restrictions meant that GXN was required to design the interior without using so much as one single nail in the walls or flooring.
The approach was to design four central multi-functional storage units; each composed from over five hundred uniquely formed wooden cabinets. The units are placed around wooden columns as totally freestanding structures. This idea was taken one step further as the cabinet modules appear to float effortlessly as they wind their way around the room. Curving playfully throughout the space, these units divide the 200 m2 room into smaller areas accommodating the Food Lab, the herb garden, staff areas and office, while offering an inspiring and elegant exhibition space for the many ingredients.
The organic forms of the units stand out through use of integrated light features, which also give the interior a lighter feel. The additional lighting is provided by GXN’s specially developed STAR lamp, whose reflective light casts dramatic geometric shadows into the surroundings. Raw and simple, through colors and forms, the design captures a unique Nordic aesthetic. True to the restaurant’s philosophy, the NOMA Lab is developed exclusively using Nordic materials.

Three Dimensional Puzzle
The NOMA Lab has been an opportunity to experiment with digital design methods. Hence, the structures holding the boxes in place were made using a parametric model. Using parametric in the design phase results in a completely dynamic model that accommodated changes made to the design, right up to the point of exporting drawings for manufacturing. Thus, drawings were sent directly from the computer to fabrication. In practice, it meant that the interior was delivered as a three dimensional puzzle of over 5000 pieces that were assembled without the help of any carpenters.The assembly details took inspiration from traditional Nordic craftsmanship.
In addition to the ‘direct from computer to printer’ interior pieces, furniture manufacturers GUBI, CPH Square and Gaggenau have been major contributors to the NOMA Lab.
