Tidal ForceShortlist 2021
Tidal Force is a unique architectural product used for decorative zoning. It can be used in hotel rooms, houses, restaurants, or elsewhere as part of the design concept or as the main, decorative, sculptural piece.
The main idea came from the moon’s gravitational pull which generates the tidal force. The tidal force is basically the way the moon gravity pulls the earth’s water close to it and creates tides.
Taking this into consideration, I created this partition. The moon and the waves are presented in an abstract and artistic way. Thus, the moon is the circle in the middle of the structure and the other symmetrical parts are the waves.
The materials that are used are three different patterned glasses (one gray piece, two in different blue shades) and a metal structure that is painted gold.
