Digital Tornado is a design jewel – a table by Zhang Zhoujie, Chinese designer with London background. The table is a perfect practice of his philosophy of action-less. It exhibits the lack of intervention – the force in the plane is polymerizing inward and flowing with natural tendency. The process only took a few seconds, but the continuous logical deduction behind it took over three years. When natural growth and function are perfectly combined, the work is completed. This product fully exposes the natural beauty of digital logic – it is generated by computer with digital output and crafted by hand for three months. The piece is a stand-out and becomes author’s most important work of 2013.

The designer has two fundamental rules when designing all his products – the first one is to respect the digital and logical rules and design without anticipation; the other one is to give as little control as possible. He strongly believes that design should be spontaneous, like poem and emotions. It should be the natural reflection of acknowledge an understanding of the world. It should be naturally looking, to be the way it should be without affectation. Building on his design philosophy, Zhoujie designs without limitations and thousands of possibilities came out. Computer plays an important role in his design, while the level of freedom changes from piece to piece.

Zhoujie Zhang’s fantastical design brings to mind digitization and galactic travels. After graduating at Central Saint Martins College, the designer returned to Shanghai. Inspired by techniques learned in London, Zhoujie set out to produce his innovative steel designs.
