The project explores thermoplastic pipes (that become pliable when heated). Various manipulations on the raw material led to the creation of a connector. With a simple technique of heating and pressing, the pipe changes its shape into a tissue that envelops and reinforces the skeleton construction. The series of objects created in this technique showcases the connector and
demonstrates its ability to serve as an axis, a rail, or both.
