Prototype #3: “the Web”

14Apr10

The third prototype was a fairly straightforward response to the blank “gap” between the pipe bundle and the large heavily-used door. I used two branch pipes as points of connection, and stretched the form toward the door (it “clings” to both sides of the gap). Its tapered form abstracts the motion of someone rounding the stairs on their ascent. In functional terms, this could be used as a momentary resting shelf or info distribution point.

This design is maybe too literal a response to the shapes in the space, and does not address the overall feel of the stairwell that well.

Review comments:

  • Maybe it wants to be made of some stretchy material – fabric?
  • Make the connection points more organically integrated into the shape of the object.
