Red Boots

“Kinetic Red Boots” Group 7 The main idea of our design was to create a static structure that could be converted into a kinetic structure exploiting the properties of the material tension and bending. Based on a single figure and repeating it twice, the goal was to create a sense of depth from the horizontal. [...]

The Metamorphosis project is a series of geometrical moments obtained by stretching an assemblage of arched rods. There are 3 types of 3D-printed joints: the base joint (B) fixes the structure to the board, the “plug” joint (A) slots in and twist-locks into the base joint, and the ”slider” (C) connects and moves along two [...]

Lotus Flower

The Lotus Flower it’s a kinetic and dynamic structure. The goal of the exercise was to producing 3d printed pieces and explore the design opportunities arising from the potential and limitations of the technology to create a dynamic assembly with 2mm diameter rods linked together by 3d printed pieces. Our idea was to design just [...]

Swriling tower !

The principal goal of the project was to design an dynamic and transfiguring structure . The concept was to design joints which would allow parts of the structure to move, without reducing the overall structural integrity. The capability of motion using the joints was explored trying to enhance the aesthetic qualities. Our thought process was [...]
