CORE studio designed, engineered, programmed, fabricated and installed a kinetic sculpture in the lobby of Thornton Tomasetti’s new San Francisco office space. The sculpture, which is suspended from the ceiling, features 48 servos with lightweight carbon fiber rods that cantilever outward. Movement is controlled via Arduinos and sensors that cause the sculpture to respond to people walking through the space below. The servo motors communicate wirelessly amongst each other to sync their movements, creating an array of possible shapes.

To interact with demo above, use your mouse to rotate the view, and your arrow keys to zoom (UP / DOWN) or pan (LEFT / RIGHT).
