totora flexible system 

a surface system that could be used in furniture pieces or architectural interiors.
each piece (reed) moves in order to get the body shape, rendering a softness sensation.
the movement of the pieces generates a subtle sound which in addition to the touch sensation, gives a whole experience.


 Totora Flexible Surface system, developed by Juan Fernando Hidalgo, is the product of a process which includes the material (reed) knowledge and industrial design.
The result is a flexible surface which could be used in furniture and interior design. The objective is to create a full experience including the sensations given by the touch, sound, temperature and the smell of the natural fibers used to build the system.
The system uses the materials without chemical process in order to harness its properties at their purest state.
