Who we are
Nomad Inception fuels from the entrepreneurial vision and the multiple passions of brothers Luis Fernando and Julian Eduardo Molina. The amalgamation of their lifetime experiences in design, visual arts, physics and computer sciences, along with their fascination for Islamic architecture – and for Islamic geometric design in particular – lead them to a two-years-long research and development project that climaxed in grasping the secrets behind the ancient art form and the programming of a set of design tools that assist in the creation of a new generation of Islamic geometric patterns.
The technology developed allows the firm to produce the largest non-periodic Islamic geometric compositions ever created, respecting every rule of the age-old art form. The achievement represents a breakthrough, as the art form had remained unchanged for centuries, due to the immense complexity involved in arranging large compositions, a feat that the accomplished master artisans that have carried the ancient heritage through generations, could only dream of.
The technological platform grows in multiple directions to ensure the firms' creations can be executed in various architectural applications, with minimal complexity added to the already monumental task of building. While certain algorithms generate these huge compositions with every sort of traditional embellishment techniques such as interlaces or double star lines, other computer programs dissect them into pieces, rendering each piece as a unique identity and leaving it ready for the action of other programs, either to be nested and fed to Computer Aided Machining (CAM) systems or to be imported into any CAD or BIM platform, for development into 3D architectural elements by architects and engineers.
All in all, we are a group of innovators... a young company breaking ground offering architecture firms and consultants a unique opportunity to differentiate, which is a well-known industry requirement for success.
