Hyperion is among Paul Heijnen's most exceptional work. It is nothing like the other pieces by Paul. It looks like a living creature rather than a functional piece. It is an arthropod-like lightning-shaped object with thin legs. Its arthropod like joints gives its flexibility to move and change position. Hyperion has robotic features so that you can either make it kneel or stand erect.
Moreover, you can manipulate Hyperion into various stances from a low crouch to a tip-toe stand. Paul used his cabinet-making skills to form a complex yet aesthetic piece. This unconventional appearance makes it look like a visual straight out of a sci-fi movie. This futuristic walking creature combines functionality as it has a bulb underneath for illumination. This way, it lights up wherever it goes.
