Commissioned by the Hybrid Platforms program.
UdK/TU Berlin, 2014
Stemming from Luis Berríos-Negrón’s Turtle series, the Turtle Six serves the Hybrid Platforms studio as a mobile apparatus for storage and display, while defining spaces for gatherings and presentations. The storage and display geometry is a continuation of the Turtle Boxes from the Turtles Two and Three. But different to the Turtles Two and Three, the box modules, when pulled out from the transports, do leave behind a shelving surface, allowing for the transports to retain their own display capability. The Turtle boxes (27x37x47cm) continue to serve as chairs, pedestals, building blocks and additional, transportable containers.
Concept: Luis Berríos-Negrón
Production Designer: Miguel Prados Sánchez
Fabrication: S. Feucht (steelwork, designer, 3plan), Mason Juday (CNC, Masonite), and Jacob Schnuck.
The display can be set up in many different ways, organizing the space according to the needs. Assembly in the workshop and set up in the Hybrid Lab.
