INSANE what you can do with a truckload of packing tape. Viennese/Croatian design collective For Use/Numen uses the common junk drawer office supply to create massive, self-supportive cocoons that visitors can climb inside and explore.

Via Fast Company:

"At the last installation inside Odeon, a former stock exchange building in Vienna, the group used nearly 117,000 feet and 100 pounds of tape. 'The installation is based on an idea for a dance performance in which the form evolves from the movement of the dancers between the pillars,' explains For Use's Christoph Katzler. 'The dancers are stretching the tape while they move, so the resulting shape is a recording of the choreography.'"

Watch below to see how it was done.
