M-Velope, structure transformable

Between art and architecture work, the artist and designer Michael Jantzen has created M-Velope, a small pavilion to be transformed architecture. Here no complex manipulation is required, the user deforms the envelope and space according to your desires, just as he would move his furniture in its interior.

M-Velope is a micro-architecture whose structure is composed of panels with steel structure and filling of Accoya, an extremely durable wood. These panels are articulated between them and mobile, allowing the user, by a few simple manipulations, to transform the architecture of the pavilion.

The panels move, fold and simply unfold. The allowable combinations are many, the envelope and space change shape at will, the user adapting and transforming them according to their desires and needs.

Produced at 10 copies only, M-Velope is available at the price of 100 000 $. A very exclusive work of art therefore, but which will not fail to inspire many architects and designers. Outside room, more room in a courtyard or garden, space and shelter for temporary manifestation, the possible applications of such a project could indeed be many if it was adapted and produced in series.
