‘Echo consists of 4 rings that can move each in 360 degrees of freedom. While one ring is motorized the others react to the slightest disbalance to create a complex set of movements.’
Echo was designed by Zoro Feigl, based on an initial design by Movares, and structurally designed and manufactured by Ceemo Engineering. It utilizes our MTC275 product on a mixture of carbon, glass and UD reinforcements. MTC275 was used due to the requirement for an excellent surface finish, laminate performance and oven-cure capabilities.
Echo is visible 24 hours a day from the Turfmarkt, next to Central Station, in The Hague and looks especially good in the afternoon sun. The structure is made for the new building of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (BZ), the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment (IenM), the Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND) and the Central Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers (COA) designed by OMA Architects.
