new_pylon_design / New pylon design


The current move to renewable energies requires a lot of development in energy infrastructure. It is inevitable that new ways of transporting electricity will have to be built.
This is a suggestion to renew the old pylon design that hasn’t changed for decades introducing a new pylon that bears the identity of modern and sustainable technologies.

The design concept consists in three key notes:
- Sensibility (integration into nature by organic and rounded forms)
- Symmetry (optimal use of materials and forces, creating a pleasant and calm object)
- Simplicity (easily recognizable and understandable design by reduction to just two simple forms)
