The design idea used to create the tile was a method of force fields. In creating this seamless pattern multiple spin forces were merged together and the effect of field lines was extended for better visualization and incorporation into the water evacuation system.


Force fields working with a different set of constraining circles.

Every line of the system is represented as an “escaping” curve. Each point tries to get away from the force field quickly, leaving those paths behind and creating the data tree structure. By playing with parameters like length, force, radius, distance in between, we could create a controlled distortion according to these field lines and force center.

circle 3D


Our approach was to create 5  large circles and to connect them to the base using a simple peg-like joint which could be moved around  in our experiments and fixed for presentation. With a focus on the transition between 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional space, the intention was to create a sphere-like object out of circles that could be manipulated by a central ring through which they were threaded, and distorted by changing of their diameters.  Read More »

The simple module unit is designed to create a curvilinear structure with linear wooden elements. Each unit comes together to form circles of eight or ten with joints possible in multiple dimensions. These unit circles create numerous possibilities of iterations with a vertical stacking of spheres. The curves can be manipulated in two half circles joined in opposite directions to increase the flexibility of experimentation.

We tested the stability of the structure through multiple options and the final result is a balance between the height and weight distribution of the spheres. The resulting structure is extremely light and is supported only by 4 laser cut pieces. This also gives us the advantage of reaching a larger height with less material because of the porous nature of the design.
