The organic forms found in this object was generated by a fabric stretching design technique developed by the artist. A single piece of fabric was stretched by hand into a three-dimensional form, which was then hardened by laminating with GRP. The resulting shapes were not pre-set but allowed to generate into the final shapes, replicating building processes found in nature.
These principles have been tried and tested through the evolutionary process, resulting in a form that is lightweight, structurally optimised, extremely efficient and strictly follows the “form follows function” principle found in nature. It is about appreciating nature’s simple, yet advanced design process.
