Wearable Metal Origami, Tine De Ruysser has developed an innovative flexible metal-textile composite. It has the appearance of a rigid multi-faceted object because the surface consists of metal platelets, yet is extremely flexible as it contains textile hinges.
Wattle and daub is one of the oldest building techniques dating back to the Bronze Age and beyond. Wattling is a way to build walls by weaving long flexible sticks in and out of upright posts. Hazel, which is pliable and grows naturally long, is a good species to use for wattle. It is also the preferred wood used by straw bale builders to pin bales together.
