DFW is a design office established in Milan, Italy, at the end of 2021.
The Workshop's independent and lightweight working structure allows it to blossom at the juncture of architecture, design, art, and technology. The investigation of the identities of objects and environments in a 3D digitality helps to bridge between real-world architecture or design products and 2D social media. DFW positions itself as independent of the physicality of its typical design users in quest of forging a brand new aesthetic and aims to respond appropriately to every design question with an experimental style outside the box.
Being conscious of the fact that people become .jpegs and that buildings become contents in our consumption platforms, the spaces and objects designed in the Workshop are 3D content with no real-life function. This decrease efficiently reacts to the pace of current user practices without sacrificing the quality of its meaning; in contrast, it even leads to the emergence of new perceptions as it covers the manufacturing cycle with creativity.
New trends appear at every stage of history, along with era changes and the development of new technology. These movements have altered the traditional designs of creations like churches and works of art. These everyday things evolved due to a novel physicality that DFW labels "Religious Robotics.
Through architectural experiments with RR, DFW hopes to bring this language's traces to the surface and illustrate how concepts like Metaverse, AI, ML, and web3 generate innovative aesthetics, a sense of belonging, and identity that dialogues with the ongoing renaissance. We are lines of code within that environment, where the only life is that which resides virtually. We can envision public interfaces to communicate with AI-generated realistic NPCs or with each other in a software landscape whose irl abstract references morph from being nostalgic transitional elements to not existing with the dominance of the new.
The designs are entirely usable in digital ecosystems and could be owned with smart contracts. Even though their renders exhibited here as a pdf is a static medium, by visiting Opensea page or selected metaverses, you can explore the 3D interface of each one of them. The primary purpose of creating these digital objects is to utilize them in real life by emerging technologies such as Artificial Reality glasses or metaverse.

DFW BELIEVES THAT THERE IS NO TIME OR MATERIAL EXISTENCE. THE WAY THIS ORGANISM WALKS THROUGH WITH DESIGN ALWAYS RETHINKING ABOUT VIBRATING SOUND FREQUENCIES OVER CIRCULAR TIME, AND THE OUTCOMES AS WORKS HAVE A SENSATION TO IMPLY HOW A LABORATORY COULD CHANGE THE COSMIC BEHAVIOR AND TENSION, LIKE THE EXAMPLE OF PROJECT_HUMAN._____________________________________________________________________
