RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
First challenge was to design a sensual and dynamic skin with the less number of different modules in order to minimize the budget and simplify the manufacturing. Two modules were designed: one straight blade and one twisted. It required production of 3 different moulds and a dozen prototypes. Second Research axis was to design a universal mounting piece that allows vertical or side entry installation and especially when fixation is required on the twisted part. Several prototypes were manufactured with different shapes and principles before designing the stainless steel compass

CHALLENGE:
Designing a facade that has never been experimented before.
