Composition with two parallelograms

2023-05-03 (V. van der Wijk)

I have designed a small balanced sculpture and made a first prototype of stainless steel. First I made a paper model of the mechanism, which consists of two floating parallellogram linkages with two fixed rotational points in the center.

This is a close up of two links connected with a pin...

... and this is the firs assembly of the prototype.

The finished prototype moves very smoothly and turned out very well balanced for which it stands still in each possible pose.

The next step is the design of the background. That will be a circular disc with which the sculpture can hang on the wall.
