YELLOW WINGS

Yellow Wings is a yellow piece of streetart in the middle of the pond designed by Loes van der Horst and Mick Eekhout. A hovering artwork, placed as an insect on the water. It appears to be floating and contrasts with its surroundings. Happily against a dark background and comforting in dull weather
The design consists of one short and one long pylon, set up in the pond. In between the pylons four suspended cables are attached. To these cables overlapping faces are fixed and inter-connected, creating a vivid ensemble of wings. The faces consist of 100mm parallel aluminium strips.
Tentech assisted Octatube formfinding and dimensioning the installation.

Textile architecture projects

The covering of a courtyard, canopies or stadiums… Tentech is part of the building team when textile and complex geometric shapes are used in new or existing architecture. Often we are responsible for a specific part of the design. In dialogue with the architect, contractor and client, we achieve an optimal contribution.

The design…

Our designs are characterized by sculptural quality and clean detailing, along with requirements of the location and usage of the structure. Combined they result into strong architectural concepts, in which aesthetics goes hand in hand with safe usage.

…and more

Our work doesn’t end with the realization of the technical design. We focus on all aspects of the design and production process that have an impact on textile architecture. Therefore, we are involved with all phases of the design process: from project definition, composition and preliminary design to the technical design, quotation, workshop drawings and maintenance. Supervising production, translating design into tailor made cutting patterns and connections, and assistance in the search and selection of the right market participants, are also part of our services. In our view, this is part of ‘modern craftsmanship’.
