LAVA has shared with us their current window installation, Digital Origami a product of parametric modeling experiments and digital fabrication methods. Additional images of this sculptural work, a brief video and a description from LAVA after the break. Chris Bosse of Laboratory for Visionary Architecture has created a window installation for the famous Italian department store la Rinascente for its Contemporary Christmas Art windows. LAVA’s window installation is an origami coral reef using 1500 recycled and recyclable cardboard molecules that explores the intelligence of natural and architectural systems. The sculpture plays with space by climbing up walls and arching over to create coral caves. Based on the geometrical structures of sea foam and corals, the colourful reef comes to life through dynamic lighting and sound.
