This is a prototype for 3D printing modularized hexagon furniture pieces. The project consists of a hexagon structure that can be assembled in various configurations depending on user function. The material is made from lightweight 3D printed aluminum that is designed to uniquely erode and wear down as time progresses. Each hexagon is also fabricated with a pattern that is unique in form and structure. The stranding technique is divided into four interweaved layers, each with its own identifiable density and structure. This gives each hexagon a lightweight and hollow form that can be easily carried and modified into different assemblies and configurations.
