An Algorithm Designs the Optimal Bow
Collaboration between artist and machine creates beautiful, functional archery
The design of the recurve bow dates back many centuries, to the warriors of ancient Europe and Asia, and the Native Americans as well. While archery is no longer a skill of war, the shape of the bow remains a graceful series of curves that provide force to drive an arrow to the target. Over the years, innovations in materials and manufacturing have improved the recurve bow, but in all that time, a human being has still provided the design…until now. AMINIMAL Studio has produced the Optimal Bow Tekina using a generative design algorithm that literally allows the computer to shape the bow.
