The design-target was to disguise a wall cladding with a novel pattern. This goal has been achieved by algorithmically modeling a surface using a tile as a basis, which repeatedly transforms into a holistic, continuous pattern. The basic shape was milled from a block that serves as a prototype, and then produced in series using a vacuummold. This allows the budget to be kept and the design transferred as a product to other walls.
