Cube // HBOINSTAP - design, Eindhoven University of Technology, 2011

This design is an exhibition space for one of the ‘fighting machines’ from the series of Tajiri. Because the other 3 machines are left out, this exhibition creates an incomplete view on Tajiri’s work. The pavilion has to fill up this void for the spectator. This is done by the duality of the design. The first impression of the object is one of a robust and solid cube. Then it becomes clear that the four sides of the cube can move downwards, which is when they can function as a stand. When looking even more closely, it becomes clear that these four sides can be expanded into a long line of hinging and driving walls. This shows the open character of the object.
