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.

  • This is merely a house formed of four hinged triangular blocks which rotate to open out or close to form a rectilinear solid. That's why external walls become internal - as they hinge together - and door shaped windows line up to become doors. What isn't explained is how the vertyical circulation happens when the house is folded out - surely there's not a stairs in each quadrant?
