Holo|Morph Redux is inspired by the planar unitized subdivision of Ron Resch’s folded origami tessellations and Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic designs. In spite of the rigid geometric design and angles, Resch’s folded origami tessellations allow for the generation of fluid surface curvature in 3D space. Fuller’s geodesic pattern capitalizes on the inherent structural stability of the triangle, allowing for the use of lightweight thin sheet material without compromising structural performance. Holo|Morph Redux integrates these design strategies and is made of identical laser-cut, folded, stainless steel units that can be combined to conform to doubly curved surfaces. Variation of the surface geometry is achieved by parametrically modulating two types of customized locking inserts, derived from the surface curvature at their respective points in the control surface.
