CELLULAR | Folded Tessellation


The goal of “CFT”, is to develop a system of folds from a singular material that generates a tessellated cellular pattern. The pattern when folded will generate two states of being, offensive and defensive. The “CFT” when closed, presents a soft, paneled surface of quad sections meeting edge to edge. When opened, it presents its defensive triangular geometry between the quads. This “between” geometry merges the whole system. “CFT”, is capable of taking the form of a single, double and triple open curved surface or connected at its ends to form a sphere. The system is inherently structural since all of its edges are connected and rigid, transitioning load forces evenly across the surface to the ground. A system of reference would be the scales of a puffer fish. This fish intakes air and increases its scale evenly, exposing its spines. When deflated, the fish scales down and each cell is closed, hiding the spines.
