D*Haus Company to exhibit shape-shifting house
Metamorphic design changes shape according to its environment
Design and architecture practice The D*Haus Company is holding its first solo show, The Narrow Path, featuring a metamorphic house filled with furniture and artwork by the firm.
The D*Haus is designed to respond to its environment by changing shape – meaning external walls become internal walls and doors become windows.
According to the practice, the house is designed using a formula discovered by mathematician Henry Dudeney in 1903, which showed how an equilateral triangle could be cut into pieces to form a square.
Inside the house will be pieces of furniture designed by the practice including a table, light and chandelier which offer similar shape shifting possibilities. A collection of artwork inspired by the mathematics of geometry will be on display within the house.
The show will be held throughout November at the Anise Gallery in London.
