Applying Geometries

(Article Excerpt)

“Our preoccupation with applying geometry to a variety of objects and materials comes from an interest in folding, as well as our desire to materialize the beauty of mathematics. We have been developing patterns that transform flat sheets into three-dimensional objects in a very controlled way that results in repetitive patterns. The controls or “restrictions” have led to a series of patterns that we have developed into chairs, screens, foldable roofs. They have given us a certain amount of constraint, but a real satisfaction in seeing the patterns emerge as a result of the simple act of folding.”
