What is ParaNode?

I came up with ParaNode Design by thinking of my own studio in 2020.
The main idea was to start a collaborative design studio for digital design technics. Helping customers to use cutting edge technologies like additive manifacturing, nodebased modelling, complex visualization and digital fabrication in there projects.

I have a small network of skilled designers i used to work with, that are able to support more complex projects. Aiming for an interdisciplanry design process that open new perspectivs to the futur.
