Conceptual Development:

The Fibonacci sequence formed the basis of the design. The ratio was maintained while trying to achieve a harmonious form.

Project Concept:

The idea was to create a geometrical pattern which can change and be perceived as a different volume from different angles. Leonardo da Vinci drawings were our inspiration. The object consists of 50 mm cubes and in each row the cube touches the adjacent cube in its corner (intersection point) and they have one parallel continuous diagonal line for the whole row. The rest of the rows are the same but it is shifted half the diagonal length to one side to intersect the cubes corners with the previous row intersection points.

Project Concept:

Motion was the main theme in the printed object, and aim to create a dynamic representation of the space. The idea was inspired from the mechanical (reciprocating) engines and the sequential movement between engine parts (cylinders and rods). The object consists of five joints, two different types, and ten steel rods. Moving one of the rods will cause the middle cylinder to rotate and to move the whole system.
