We choose to work with flexible formwork with multi-material/ smocking and pinching.
Our intent was to create a repetition: one shape multiplied and then connected (smocking) with another material: multi-material. This could be applied as modals in an architectural context.
During the process six square shapes was casted in flexible plastic. Each square was attached to the next with a clamp. It could for example be a wall that is joined to another wall by pinching, where another material (multi-material) make the ”clamp effect” itself. The center of the clamp effect could be where another material makes out a joint. For example a rope, a screw, a bolt or a chain.
As a final conclusion it could be assumed this form in a bigger scale would allow the material being pinched to even better. Now it is fragile and the clamps almost erased what they are suppose to pinch.
