Just a little fun project with floor blocks. It is just the string holding it upright.
It was a bit more difficult than I anticipated, but here it is.
Thanks for looking and as always comments welcome

Actually it’s quite simple. The center string is the tensioner that pushes the two platforms away from each other putting tension on the 4 corner strings. It is the tension on the 4 corner string that keeps it upright.

I like the tensegrity design combined with your cube in cube. It is a nice combination of intrigue.
