By contemplating on the Eigenchair project, we ponder upon strategies and concepts of designing by using information technologies. What are the potentials of data driven design? What happens with objects when they are abstracted and reduced to a set of data? The emphasis is no longer on the creation of physical objects, but on conceiving meta-objects in the possibility space. Furthermore, this enables us to manipulate with a whole population of objects, instead of a single object. How do we get this abstract system to relate to the real world? Information technologies have opened up a number of new ways of thinking about the world and the object and they, by far, surpassed the formally simplified expression in design and architecture. Based on intellectual heritage of history and culture, information technologies can, by utilizing and recycling various elements and information, explore the 21st century object.
