Nodus, which means “knots” in Latin, was inspired by traditional Korean paper craft “Ji-Seung” dating back to the 13th century. Nodus is made of carbon fibre strings that have been hand woven into over 10,000 knots using techniques employed by Korean paper craft artists from the past. Fiber optics and LEDs were added to illuminate the work. Nodus combines traditional craft technique with modern high-tech materials and demonstrates alternate ways to utilize craft methods of the past. It pays homage to those unknown, skilled master craftsmen who developed these beautiful, intricate techniques.
Samsung Electronics sponsored with their latest LEDs and components necessary for this design.
