Description

A complex articulated equilibrium in the form of three-dimensional curvature patterns is delineated through the interaction between two divergent material behaviors. On the one hand, the stored elastic energy of stretched textile, and on the other hand, the stiffness of a thermoplastic polymer distributed heterogeneously through algorithmically generated 3D-printed patterns. At the Bucharest-based design and manufacturing studio Drag And Drop, the two material components are combined in a hybrid system with a smooth aesthetic appearance, forming a lamp with organic aesthetics.
