Zip Tie Cocoons

Zip Tie Cocoons

We tend to be easily mesmerized by ethereal spaces concocted of everyday materials, like the ones created by 52 undergraduate and graduate students in the interior architecture program at Germany's Akademie der Bildenden Künste München...

The students created multiple spaces to reflect three themes: retreat, communal living, and self-expression. Essentially they only used four materials: zip ties, cotton batting, exercise balls, and halogen spotlights. The weaving together of the zip ties took 17,000 hours!

Ultimately the spaces were installed at the Aedes Pfefferberg Gallery in Berlin (follow the gallery link to see more photos of the installation). For more information and to check out the original article and post at Interior Design, click here.
