These are NEW re-designs of an older university project called “Platonic solids”, based on regular polyhedra solids. I added pendant LED lights hanging from the ceiling in adition to the previously existing design of the centre piece collection of vase and bowl. I have also idea to create these forms from thin flat sheet glass glued togeather in to the outer shape and then after to pour the internal hollow space with the liqiud silicon, which will solidify and make the whole piece look like to be made out of one piece of transparent glass.
This trophy was designed for the “Czech-French Camber of Commerce” as a prize for the winners. There are several different types of shapes, which came from my interest in crystalography, so the shapes are matematical construct of absolutely perfect crystal without any iperfection in it’s 3D lattice. This particular one is Beta Quartz and the brass stand is it’s casted shadow made physical.
This is an example of algorythm based modeling in Grasshopper plugin in Rhinocerros 5.0 CAD software. Whole algorythm works on simple rules of “Turtle logic”, which gives the virtual machine orders where to branch, at which angle and length in 2D plane or 3D space. This logic structre defined by algorythm and few variables eg. angle or length can also run different number of discrete times, called generations. Generations does change the virtual age of the plant from the young and simle to the old and more complex looking.
This set of bowl and vase is designed to be cutted out of clear optic blocks of glass, therefore they are going to be perfectly clear and without imperfections inside of the glass. From this type of glass are made optic apartures as camera lenses and it is the best quality glass that can be used for such purpose.
