Image of Nippon


This tensegrity octahedron is made of bamboo and elastic string. The colour combination resembled me of the rising sun in the Japanese flag. It has a robust bounce way and weighs only about 30 grams. The models collapses in three ways, creating different pattern each way.

With a size of 20x20x20cm it fits nicely on a desktop or book shelf, and the little weight makes it well suited for hanging installations. But then you couldn't play with it anymore.....

All models for sale are hand made in Brunswick, a suburb of Melbourne. Find out more about 'You can touch this!' in my blog.
