Discipline: Professional Concept

“BON” is the future airless tire. Natural plant leaves and animal bones have various structural efficiencies. An informal pattern structure was applied for structural stability while achieving maximum weight saving. This type of structure is called Voronoi Structure. Voronoi Structure resembles various natural structures such as cell division, animal pattern, honeycomb, and the cell shape of leaves. This structure achieves the maximum effect with a minimum structure. Thus, structural stability and economical efficiency are possible.
