Hella Jongerius has been experimenting with three-dimensional weaving techniques for several years. She believes that technology contributes to the development of society and cultural values. Objects, too, provide answers to the question of how we want to live.
The Unfoldable Cubes result from a study into weaving multi-layered constructions that can be unfolded to form spatial structures. Some of the Unfoldable Cubes have added functions, such as photovoltaic strips and yarns that conduct energy, to unfold these woven structures and set them in motion.
