This project, realised in 2012, gathers four fundamental wooden (oak) forms, forming a family.
Each form functions with the same lock principle, and has a volume of 600 square centimetres.
Each half of every form is pierced in its centre and two sticks are inserted following specific angles and positions.The two symmetrical parts of this object fit together and a 90° rotating movement enables the object to reach its final position through a lock principle.
Given that this lock system is the same for all, the assembling patterns between the different locks are varied. Besides the four fundamental forms, there also is a hybrid lock.
Tension found at the heart of the object, tightens both parts together. Each funda- mental form is balanced through this very principle of tension and release.
