Inspired by the scales of snakes, Nieuwenhuyse reused scrap plywood to reproduce the texture of the reptiles’ skin. Overlayed wood chips that look like scales After spotting diamond cut wood chips on the floor of a workshop at the Kingston University in London, Stefanie Nieuwenhuys remembered of a snakeskin bag she bought used. The design and fashion student collected the discarded leftovers and started to work, layering the pieces of wood on fabric like reptilian scales. Giles Miller Studio. Zaha Hadid designs Volu dining pavilion for Design Miami. Design Miami 2015: architects Zaha Hadid and Patrik Schumacher have designed a dining pavilion shaped like an open clam shell.
Hadid and Schumacher's team used computational design to create the pavilion, which is constructed from laser-cut and perforated steel surfaces, aluminium box sections and timber loops. "Defined by digital processes, the pavilion has been developed in such a way that its components are, at most, singly curved," said the London-based practice. Volu appears to be made from a continuous piece, and features an oval roof that tilts downwards over diners like a mushroom cap. The skeleton of the 3.2-metre-tall structure houses cut-out irregularly shaped sections that form a pattern across the roof and the supporting stem.

A mythical creature with waving body and serpent-like forms, with its perfectly flexible skin following movement and yet being a perfectly adaptable shell… Laokoon structural fabric brings forth in us associations from our deepest unconscious, memories from prehistoric times and of the long-forgotten living organisms of evolution.
This absolutely outstanding, innovative and transformable form, uniting art & material was invented by Zsuzsanna Szentirmai-Joly. Laokoon is a moving structure, it’s lamellae can be made of paper, leather, metal, wood, cork, many kinds of plastic etc. The main criteria regarding this matchless material is that it should have a certain strenght and at the same time certain flexibility. Structure made of it is always rectangle, but as the series of lamellae can slide on each other, they can be arranged in a fan-like or a 3D round form – or even be turned out.
