Project The Tension_Shelf / shelf

Project The Tension_Shelf
Project The Tension_Shelf

We are living in the era of limited resources and unlimited needs. I think “Efficiency” is the most important message to put in my design. Project The Tension is the message for our future generations, talking about “the Efficiency” through "Lightweight Structure". The shelf is “the Cable Stayed Mast Structure” which was developed through research and model test. The structure consists of iconic twin masts, beams and tension cables which are formed by analysis of the stress in the structure. The shelf is made by less materials, also use the material technically better and more beautiful way are containing the message called efficiency.
