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.

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 adjacent rods. The geometrical moments can be created by changing the position of the plug joint in the board, or also by moving the base joint into the laser-cut holes. The chosen arrangement either expands or contracts the shape of the metamorphosing caterpillar whilst the slider deforms the body in various axes. Finally, the addition of a hinge in the board allows for the compression of the structure at an different angles. Combining 3 different strategies, the object (or parts of it) can be stretched compressed and twisted into an infinite number of geometries.
