mTABLE: Design and Manufactured Via Mobile Phone!




The mTABLE is a table people can design using a mobile phone!

Yep, you heard me.., design a table via your mobile phone. The mTABLE is designed by sculpting a computer generated image of the table surface, choosing dimensions, materials and colors. These parameters are directly transmitted to the computer controlled production facility for the manufacturing of the custom designed mTABLE which is then shipped to you in approx 8-12 weeks.



How do you make one? Well, there are some parameters, first you must have the right phone.

Get the mTABLE application from the mshape site and install it on a NOKIA series 60 compatible mobile phone (7650 or later).



Then the mTABLE is designed with the following simple actions:

1. Sculpt a smooth landscape by placing one of seven deformers (Deformers are intuitive and interactive tools used to sculpt surfaces into new shapes). Depending on the distribution of the forces you can even create holes in your mTABLE.

2. Choose any table size between 0.6m x 0.6m and 1.2m x 2.4m. The height can be set between 0.2m and 0.9m. It can be a lounge table, cofee table, console or massive dining table.

3. Choose between Swiss walnut wood and high gloss lacquer in numerous colors.

Then, submit your design to mSHAPE.COM.



Once submitted, your design is rendered and can be viewed in high resolution on the mShape site. The details of your mTABLE can be checked using a 3D viewer. You can browse through other designs to get inspired and view pictures of already built mTABLES (like those shown further down in this post) and then order your mTABLE through a local dealer.



The design data is transmitted to the manufacturer where the surface of the mTABLE is shaped with a computer controlled mill (shown above). The final assembly and quality control is taken care of by a professional carpenter.

Your mTABLE will be shipped after 8-12 weeks. Every mTABLE produced receives a unique number.

Matsonian said...

Pretty cool.. maybe you can help me. I am looking for another company I heard about that will manufacture and drop ship your custom furniture designs on a per order basis. I think I read about it in Inc or Fast Company a couple years ago, but have not been able to find it at all. Ideas?

Thanks!
