There is a reasonably common practice of testing trusses and other geodesic shapes by connecting a series of bugle beads (glass tubular beads) with a single continuous thread. This project started with the idea to experiment with these forms at a larger scale using paint rollers and rope. Eventually, we realized that we could replace an ordinary rope with an LED rope, and run a program that would illuminate the lights sequentially, tracing the rope’s path through the form. The result is a fluffy illuminated truss which serves as a three dimensional diagram of its own creation.

DesignTO x KEDD

‘Octet Truss w/ Snake’ is one of 10 projects in the King East Design District (located in Old Town Toronto), a neighbourhood running along King Street East, from Church Street to Parliament Street. During the DesignTO Festival, you are invited to visit exhibitions, workshops and talks hosted in the showrooms of select local businesses.

On Friday, January 27, join us for King East Design District Party presented by DesignTO, a roaming neighbourhood party anchored by five Party Hubs. The KEDD Party is a must-attend bash, bringing together hundreds of designers and design-lovers.
