Careful study over 2 biological phenomenon and constant experimentation with various materials and physical models brought up 3 kinetic systems.

The engine – a system developed from the motor cells inflation.

The body – developed from the Frangipanis flower unfolding motion.

The stream lining – developed trough a comprehensive research on light fibres.

All 3 systems are developed by half of year long careful study with 3 materials: Inflatable silicon, Light fibre and Elastic fabric.

We joined these systems and engineered a complex single kinetic structure, which elegantly covers the rigid columns in the London Design Museum. The structure folds, unfolds and gently light up to transform and articulate the 1st floor cafe in the museum.

The transformation of these kinetic structures generates different spacial conditions within the cafe. In the same time the relationship between the different spaces are organized by the circulation, which start to be navigated by the transformation of the kinetic structures.

We create unique spacial experience in any scale trough all design disciplines. Our work is based on precision, communication and constant experimentation with advanced computational, material and building technologies.
