bisymmetric hendecahedron The unit is developed based on the bisym metric hendecahedron, which has a very unique way to be assembled with each other, creating very interesting patterns.
maya_ experimentation By using mayaâ€™s tools of extrusion, subtraction, deforming and subdivision, a number of different forms were created, so as to end up with the final unitâ€™s shape.
final unit_ cluster The drawings and the rendered views of the final unit and a cluster of it.
fatal error When unit get aggregated, created an uninteresting image, basically due to its repetitive pattern. The most obvious solution was to turn my interest into the materialization of this unit and as a consequence, to the clusters of it.
difficult to achieve the connection at the core
SILICONE _ unfeasible to create mould SILVER _
still repeatitive pattern
FABRIC _ changeable, flexible, different forms, but still using the same unit
from unit to system
fixed forms_ final model
