suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
tecla TANGORRA + robert IVANOV: The beginning of the project was based on the gills of the manta ray. How from one surface it’s divide himself to making progressive openings. The complete geometry is triangulated to make more architectonic effects.
The space is created by 40 stripes of 25cm width, where each one deform, twist, reduces width, pull up and down for making the functions of; presentation, communication, sitting, table, desk, lights openings, storage.
All the stripes are following a general geometry of 3 sinusoidal lines that are evolving in the space. These directions lines are making the overall space more structured.
These stripes are covered with carpet in one side when the other side is painted in black. That allow to see almost the complete collection of 2TEC2.
