    Back in 2015, we had a chance to attend a workshop with Schattdecor, a partner of School of Form. As an exchange between students and the company, we had to develop a three-dimensional object that would highlight the variety and quality of the company's new product, Smartfoil EVO, in a limited space. The structure should have consisted of tension and compression elements and integrate the foil in the overall design as a decisive constructional component without touching one another. Read Less

Back in 2015, we had a chance to attend a workshop with Schattdecor, a partner of School of Form. As an exchange between students and the company, we had to develop a three-dimensional object that would highlight the variety and quality of the company's new product, Smartfoil EVO, in a limited space. The structure should have consisted of tension and compression elements and integrate the foil in the overall design as a decisive constructional component without touching one another.
For our team, the starting point in developing the form was wood, its structure and qualities. The elliptic elements refer to the shape of wood cells as seen under a microscope. Oval shape pleasing to the human eye evokes associations with organic structures.
Once we decided on an element design, we started implementing a model as a 1:4 prototype.
Thanks to tensegrity system, the structure gives the impression of natural movement. The openwork form adds delicacy and multidimensionality to the design.
Our project was chosen to be built in 1:1 scale and shown off during Łódź Design Festival in 2015. During the event, we also conducted a workshop on tensegrity system.
