Some of the most dynamic and inspiring design ideas of 2012 came from the D*Haus Company. Although it was only established one year ago D*Haus is an experimental design and architecture practice that constantly strives to explore, develop and express form through movement, colour and mathematics.
The D*Haus Company base their innovative design template on the mathematical formula discovered by Henry Dudeney in 1903 and which proved that a perfect square could transform into an equilateral triangle. Deconstructing Dudeney’s puzzle provides the back-bone to two of my favorite D*Haus designs: the Dynamic D*Haus and the D*Table.
The Dynamic D*Haus, which epitomizes the practice’s design approach, was conceived for the harsh climatic extremes of Lapland and it will literarily move with the sun. The Dynamic D*Haus is metamorphic, having external walls that become internal, doors that become windows – it is actually 8 houses in 1, a revolution in modern day living. It is definitely worth checking out the video of this cutting edge design here.
On a smaller scale, the D*Table conceptually resembles the Dynamic D*Haus as it is essentially 8 tables in one, providing infinite possibilities whilst maintaining the clean aesthetic of a modernist design. You can have a look at a video of the innovative D*Table here. If you are interested in purchasing the D*Table you could register your interest here.
The D*Haus Company recently had their first show ‘The Narrow Path’ at the Anise Gallery in London. If you case you missed it you could still visit the very architectural Anise Gallery to see some very interesting prints by the D*Haus Company.
