John Kostick

Foldable Star Sculptures

A combination of mathematics and art, Kostick’s foldable stars are as mesmerizing as the designer himself. We spent an afternoon with him, and it was like attending a lecture at MIT. As he explained (very patiently) the principles of tensegrity and non-Cartesian axes, he continued to spin and fold his Stars, which he refers to as “mathematical truths that you can hold in your hand.” Step into his fascinating world.

P.S. That flame that he works with is over 3000° Fahrenheit. His only protection from it: a pair of Ray-Bans.
