sash reading, heather + ivan morison: three cubes collide kite

the ‘three cubes collide’ kite by sash reading and ivan morison

UK-based designers sash reading, heather + ivan morison have created a three dimensional cube kite, ‘three cubes collide’. the kite is formed by 1,700 3D printed connected segments and was engineered and manufactured by queen + crawford. the modular piece’s easily scalable form levitates seamlessly, regardless of its size, due to its lightweight composition of carbon fibre rods and cubenfibre aerospace fabric.

the kite was given a test flight in jersey, united kingdom
