And now for something curious happening on our planet right now: a giant polyhedron made of mirrors connected by zippers.
Wink Space is a giant immersive kaleidoscope in a shipping crate built by Japanese designers Masakazu Shirane and Saya Miyazaki.
“To create this prism-like, modular installation,” My Modern Met reported, “the duo folded one giant mirror sheet like origami, then connected the 1,100 triangular panels with zippers.”
“We wanted to create the world’s first zipper architecture,” Shirane says.
“In other words, this polyhedron is completely connected by zippers. And in order to facilitate even more radical change some of the surfaces open and close like windows.”
