Festo Inversion

The contrasting body consists of 24 fast cast resin modules which are divided into four equal link chains. The individual is hinged at the joints by a film hinge; the result is a chain whose links can rotate together around itself or the individual module about its longitudinal axis. The onward transport of the single chain and the stability of the entire system is supported by an increased contact area to the respective mirrored counterpart.
