Unfoldable Cubes

Hella Jongerius

Jongerius and her team at Jongeriuslab have been experimenting with three-dimensional weaving techniques for several years. She believes that technology contributes to the development of society and cultural values. Objects can also provide answers to the questions of how we want to live. The Unfoldable Cubes are the result of a study into weaving multi-layered constructions that can be unfolded to form spatial structures. Some of the Unfoldable Cubes have added functions, such as photovoltaic strips and yarns that conduct energy and unfold these structures and set them in motion.
