An initial version of SWISH emerged from a competition organized by the Milan-based workshop Miocugino in spring 2016 credits for Andrea Cassi and Sammy Zarka. The initiative brought together both renowned designers and a group of young ‘Makers’ from all over the world, all tasked with a common goal: designing a hardware-free stool by using wood elements coming from a unique wood sheet. Carlo Ratti Associati won the prize, and an early version of the seat was released in open source.

The project stems from a system patented by Carlo Ratti Associati that uses digital fabrication to create objects that are pre-programmed to take different shapes. Produced with CNC machinery, SWISH is a lightweight seat made of 27 thin wooden elements. The components are interlocked through a system of individually designed junctions and hinges, each different from the other.
