Laboratory for Architecture and Design
Only the interdisciplinarity of architecture, bionics, mathematics and computer science allows the
available technological potential to be exploited to the full and paves the way for the innovative
furniture configurator, which not only revolutionises the understanding of furniture but also heralds a
new era in furniture design.
form.bar is developed by Okinlab, a start-up from Saarbrücken. Okinlab was founded by Nikolas Feth and
Alessandro Quaranta out of the university. The founders' starting point and desire was to make people's
living and working environments more ergonomic, sustainable, material-efficient and harmonious. Numerous
studies and projects using the latest manufacturing and design technologies form the basis of the company.
