CLIMATOLOGY:  MACRO WOODEN VELCRO

 

Celebrating Nature's Survival Tactics

 

Climatology: Celebrating nature’s survival tactics is a new experimental smart textile series. Using the smartness of nature to create natural responsive movement.


Macro Wooden Velcro is a collection that studies how to create poetic interactive structures through hybridization of nature’s self-engineered forms. Magnifying micro structures into macro physical design features. The delicate movement narrates the invisible energy that is constantly surrounding us. The movement is reflecting the change of moisture, heat and light.


Macro Wooden Velcro’s behaviour is inspired by the natural physical flexible structure of a pinecone combined with the hooks of a dandelion seed.


Layers of veneer are combined with fabric, reactive dyes and
reflective surfaces to create objects that adapt to fluctuations in
light, temperature and humidity.
