The Narrow Path
Published 24th September 2012, by D*Haus
From 2nd to 31st November we will be holding our first solo exhibition at Anise Gallery (13a Shad Thames, London). Please email us if you’d like to come to the private view.
The D*Haus Company is an experimental design and architecture practice that is fascinated and inspired about the mathematics that can be found in every fibre that makes up our world. Constantly striving to explore, develop and express form through movement, colour and mathematics, D*Haus articulate their ideas using three well known and respected mediums; Architecture, Art and Design.
“The Narrow Path”, The D*Haus Company’s first solo show will bring together the D*Table, the D*Light, the High*Light and D*Prints alongside the Dynamic D*Haus – a metamorphic house that can respond dynamically to its environment by controlled adaptation to seasonal, meteorological and astronomical conditions. Established 1 year ago, The D*Haus Company have based their innovative design template on the mathematical formula discovered by Henry Dudeney in 1903. The formula proved that a perfect square could transform into an equilateral triangle.
Dudeney’s formula is an inherent part of The D*Haus Company, and their first solo show is a tribute to his pioneering vision, with D*Haus following in the mathematicians footsteps. Deconstructing Dudeney’s puzzle provides the back-bone to their cutting edge, contemporary designs:
The D*Table; Essentially 8 tables in one, providing infinite possibilities whilst maintaining the clean aesthetic of a modernist design.
The D*Light; The chameleon of the light world giving limitless possibilities and colour.
The High*Light; A chandelier offering the same possibilities in colour and shape, unique to D*Haus products.
D*Prints; A collection of art works inspired by mathematics that bend the rule of strict geometry. New limited edition prints will be available at the show.
And the Dynamic Haus; A house for all seasons. Conceived for the harsh climatic extremes of Lapland, the D*Dynamic will literally move with the sun, external walls become internal walls and doors become windows – it is a revolution in modern day living, never conceived before but wholly possible due to simple geometric principles. If the eye-opening animation by AVR London doesn’t convince you then the model certainly will.
D*Haus believe in ideas that can improve and inspire daily life through flexibility, adaptability and originality.
