Interiors, typically a wall-covering, tiles, partition wall. By combining Shape Memory Alloys into this concept piece, it allows the plastic to bend and mould to the temperature of a room. To ensure the waves are flexible, additional plasticised should be added to the powder mix, this will enable movement.

Base Design of Prototype:
The array tool, enables a better precision of rotational movement, and enables you to edit the X & Y axis of the design, creating much more interesting movement and repetitions. Firstly by selecting tools, and array will bring up the array tool window to begin the editing process
I began by experimenting with the amount design counts and the rotational angle of the structure, altering the amounts in each window.

- I continued experimenting with the array tool, and looking and developing new design concepts, taking into consideration the design elements and implications from the previous design, ensuring they didnt exist in the new design developments.
