EFoS - Elastic Folding Structure

It is built around the simplest materials connected by hinges, and is bent to the rules of elasticity and folding. Wood latticework, one of the traditional elements of Japanese architecture, reaches a delicate relationship between light and shadow. By intersecting layers of lattices in various angles, EFoS creates a visual phenomenon known as moiré. Even more, this creates spatial depth and complex effects by the tremors of light and movement around the structure.
