united states based design office takebayashi scroggin (d.o.t.s.) has created ‘zip tie massimal’
a life size installation made from standard zip ties. designated as a hollow and mesh-like form,
the object is produced at a 1:1 scale to serve as an experimental prototype to engage the public realm.
systematically generated from a singular material, the form is an animal abstraction intended to
mimic a docile petting zoo when joined by other creatures.

the supporting framework and skin is constructed with 20,000 zip ties producing an ephemeral glowing
volume when illuminated. discretely stabilized with a cable suspension system anchored to the ceiling,
the creation attracts visitors and serves as a centerpiece in the atmosphere.
