A new design and production method based on a set of mathematical rules.
Flat sheets with carefully planned cuts – each has a different function, which will reveal itself with one move. A mathematical and material research surrounding the auxetic structure. The structure serves as a basis for planning cuts that provide the sheet with its potential third dimension. External physical forces, or alternatively, the exertion of physical force, will convert a surface into a structure. For one material, the transformation will be a singular experience and for another it is a recurring process.
