The Tension Shelf is the object inspired by the notion of 'Tensegrity'.
I wanted to make the most out of least utilizing tensegrity.
To compute the absolute minimum construction, I optimized the stress and subtracted from the object everything unnecessary. Only the essential components remained.
Extensive fabrication and sketch work revealed the best way to combine the components with tensegrity making maintaining stiffness possible.
The Tension Shelf consists of minimum material but offers functionality as a stiff shelf.
The minimalistic structure demonstrates ‘the beauty of pure structure'.
