Folding Square

Folding Square

Thanks to its simple geometric basic shape, the finished prototype can be designed as a versatile façade. The targeted assembly of elements alone results in different patterns. The variable opening of each individual element creates a kind of work of art that can be changed according to taste or lighting. Furthermore, by opening the elements from an almost two-dimensional facade, a complex futuristic three-dimensional facade is created.
