ECAL Diploma Project
My research led me through sporting equipment, textile supply and through an exploration of past works by people like Bruno Munari, Isamu Noguchi, or George Nelson.
I landed on the idea of using a minimal number of rods which would interact with a non-stretchable textile, each element holding the other in tension. This image shows my first 'successful' prototype, but it was actually my 11th prototype for this project. I would go on to create 24 total different variations and prototypes before coming to the final solution.
