Living in a small apartment with no space for a full Christmas tree, I started a tradition of making a wall-mounted “2D” tree. This year, I decided on a quiet and minimal tree to help bring some calm to the end of a hectic year. The 2.4m high structure is made by stuffing a suspended white lycra cone with cardboard “ribs”. The cardboard pieces are lens-shaped to create the curved form. Each piece, one bigger than the other, touches the next at a point, but are not joint. Instead, they are held in place only by tension from the elastic lycra fabric, thus creating a tensegrity structure.
