Synthetic lattices are based on the geometry of “Bucky Fullerenes”—or the carbon 60 molecule (soccer ball), that are used to create islands of compression in a sea of tension. The tensile and compressive components can be formed from almost any substance. The resulting lattice can be made stiff or flexible, large or small, for a […]

In this article we will explain about the contribution of Flextegrity to Bio sensitive pipe support for soil stabilization. Flextegrity’s material architecture presents the opportunity to design dynamic, resilient load support systems.  Weight can be distributed over a larger area without impeding drainage in challenging environments such as permafrost, wetlands and sand.  Our permeable icosahedral […]

f you were asked to create the universe out of balls and strings, would you know where to start? …and where you might end up? – Sam Lanahan, 2007 Buckminster Fuller spent the early 20th century to innovate and invent new ways to improve the human shelter. This includes: Using modern technology for shelter construction. […]

We can create entirely new categories of materials and structures that are both strong / lightweight and accomplish the important goal of doing the most with the least by utilizing nature’s own geometry! C6XTY utilizes the familiar shape of the soccer ball, which is also known as a Fullerene or Carbon 60 molecule. This molecule […]

From roads to bridges, stormwater is something that can wreak havoc if the problem is not dealt with immediately. In the developed environments, the unmanaged stormwater could lead to two major and some minor issues. The two major problems will be flooding caused by the runoff, and the second one is water pollution. Stormwater Management […]

Just imagine how amazing you will feel when every street you walk has smart and intelligent features. From strong pavement to damage resistance, smart drainage system for stormwater to natural percolation of petroleum-based pollutants, there is a solution that can turn all this into reality. C6XTY is promoting ideas and concepts where structures can be […]

Imagine…strong, open-architectured, bio-friendly scaffolding to shelter growth of native flora and fauna…ideally formed from iron that can be naturally oxidized and ‘absorbed’ back into natural ocean floor ecosystem/environment for a healthier ocean…

Imagine…catalytic converters with significantly enhanced surface area for reactive catalysts, coupled with enhanced permeability for improved airflow and the ability to intelligently communicate with the fuel system in detailed real-time…

Imagine…Flextegrity’s elegant synergy of compression and tension at building-scale, with utilities and communications systems built into the architectural tension elements…

Imagine…the unprecedented ability for designers and consumers to create highly unconventional and personalized architectural and lighting features that might include customizable networks of conductive connectors, transparent/translucent polyhedral components, and LED/fiber-optic elements…

Imagine…bio-friendly components for artificial body materials that emulate the strength of bone, flexibility of muscles and connective tissue, and physioelectronic conductivity of nerves, due to the ability to incorporate functional elements such as circuitry, conductivity, lighting,  and sensors directly into a single integrated layer of strong and flexible material…

C6XTY – building and creating with nature

What is it? Flextegrity has developed and patented a 3-dimensional tensile lattice that is easily constructed from two component parts. The soccer ball shape is excellent for distributing compressive forces across its surface. Buckminster Fuller described these as ‘islands of compression.’ The balls then are surrounded in a ‘sea of tension.’ Tension and compression can […]
