Auxetik™ a kinetic ceiling that reacts to human traffic. The kinetic ceiling is actuated with a microcontroller and a self-detecting camera module. The design of the ceiling utilises auxetic geometry to create a fabric-like stretch in a grid of inelastic panels. The triangles are pulled by cables and controlled by stepper motors. 

The stepper drivers act as the medium between the microcontroller and the stepper motors. They help to relay commands from the microcontroller to allow the stepper to move as desired. They are programmed to contour and follow traffic when humans walk under the ceiling – simply put, a ceiling that follows you.

AntiCAD is a product design company founded in 2017 and is currently headquartered in Singapore. The name AntiCAD is an antithesis to traditional CAD (Computer Aided Design). Parametric design is a process based on algorithmic thinking that enables the expression of parameters and rules that define the relationship between design intent and response
