Jakob Tensegrity Torus

The challenge of exploring the fringe of our capabilities prompted us to plan and build this one-of-a-kind construct: the Jakob Tensegrity Torus, a highly complex structure consisting of rods and wire rope. Swiss architect Filippo Broggini was commissioned with the draft. The production and assembly work was handled by Jakob employees in the course of 6 years. The initiative acquainted us with the limits of technical feasibility. Testing frontiers encourages us to rethink long-standing empirical insights and established processes. Not rarely, this results in new approaches that allow traditional concepts to be improved. We are convinced that our customers will benefit from the experience we have accrued with this project.
