Boreas
2015

Diameter 32"

High-tec Kozo, plastic, stainless steel, LED


Folded from 128 pieces of High-tec Kozo paper. LED globe to provide warm and bright light. 

The seed for the form genesis of Boreas is an 3D version of an flat-foldable Waterbomb module. Through an algorithm based design process, this simple module seed is rhythmically repeated in a series of definitions and mathematical functions in the software program Grasshopper so as to create complex assemblies. By changing the mathematical parameters in the algorithmic structure, a myriad of distortions and transformations are generated in order to study the relationship between form, structure, and flat-foldabilty.
