Softbones by Raquel Gallego and Pablo Rica
Softbones is an envelope for 4 pencils produced in 3D Printing (Rapid Prototyping). The envelope can be placed vertical or horizontal, laying like a soft bag. An Voronoi grid is the structure on the outside skin. The inner rings -placing the four pencils- are attached to the envelope. The pencils fall into the bag until they hit the cross structure in the bottom.
The horizontal sections are produce by rotating one inicial geometry.Those sections have been lofted and the result of that is the geometry that it is shown in the left corner on bottom. The net is a voronoi grid made of a gradient field of points, more dense in the bottom and lighter on the top.
