Dimension variable. Le principe de tenségrité, terme utilisé en architecture et en biologie, est la faculté d’une structure à se stabiliser par le jeu des forces de tension et de compression qui s’y répartissent et s’y équilibrent. Ici, elle permet à partir de baguettes de porcelaine autonomes d’obtenir des constructions variables et flexibles.

The principle of tensegrity, term used in architecture and biology, is a structural principle based on the use of isolated components in compression inside a net of continuous tension, in such a way that the compressed members do not touch each other and the prestressed tensioned members, usually cables or tendons, delineate the system spatially. Here, it allows, from independent sticks of porcelain, to obtain variable constructions, which are also quite flexibles since there is something slack at the joints.
