A design that resembles a snow crystal shape, is a Japanese pattern called “asanoha”.
This time since the collaboration is a project between Finland (Sun Effects) and Japan (VUILD), I have created a proposal that has hybridized a snowflake’s form (Finland) with Japanese traditional pattern.
“Asanoha” pattern consists of parallelograms and hexagons.
For the partition design, I have adopted a structural form layering a parallelogram shaped patter panel with a hexagonal based truss. Each combination of the shapes, creates a perfect pattern of “Asanoha” in the front, however as you change perspectives the pattern changes according to your viewpoint.
I designed this partition so,
Each audience members seat will experience a different view.
Each attendee is offered their own geometry/pattern.
