No matter the position of the triangular pieces, if it sticks to the base, it will turn on. This is made possible by the magnets embedded inside the base and the triangles, which are positioned to harbor connection when it’s safe to use. When the pieces are not being used, they can be store within the base, creating a new shape.
This project explores the potential of 3D printing technology in order to avoid the use of glue and screws, and conductive thread, to avoid welding. This allows for easy replacement of any electrical parts – they only need to be sewn together. Hedra has snap-on pieces, making it easy to assemble and disassemble for recycling – all while being safe to use.
Hedra acknowledges the agency that the objects have over us within our built environment. It empowers the user with it’s ever-evolving design.
