The things we wish for, demand and need in our home environment are changing at an ever-increasing rate. We seem to want to become more and more flexible.
The Dynamic Dragonfly is a furniture collection based on the unique properties of a dragonfly. By looking at the mechanism in a dragonflys wings an extreme rotating arm was developed for flexibility in the living space.

Wings of a dragonfly
The wings of a dragonfly are separate from each other. They can move their wings individually. This is why a dragonfly can hover in one spot for a long period of time or can fly straight in all directions.
The wings have a network of blood vessels whose structure is indispensable for the taxonomic classification of the Dragonfly. The costa, the tip of the wing, is puckered and behaves like a spoiler. By allowing air to escape from the wing surface, the dragonfly is able to lift itself off. Close to the costa is a colored spot, the pterostigma. This colored spot helps the dragonfly to fly delicate.
