Hefty-Looking Geometric Kite Is A Lightweight Flying Sculpture
This deceptively hefty-looking cube is actually a structure designed to fly like a kite.
Behold, ‘Little Shining Man’, perhaps the most brilliant kite design we’ve seen. Conceived by artists, Heather and Ivan Morison in collaboration with London architectural designer Sash Reading and Birmingham fabrication design studio, Queen and Crawford, the handmade sculpture features over 23,000 individual components.
The astonishingly, lightweight geometric kite is comprised of carbon-fiber rods, specially designed 3D-printed connectors, and a handmade composite fabric typically used for yacht sails.
