Design of the Week: Centerpieces

By on April 29th, 2013 in Design


This week’s selection is sculptor George Hart’s Centerpiece. Actually we should say, “centerpieces”, as it’s really a large collection of similar objects, each with variations in color design as well as structure. 
Hart says: 
For a Museum of Mathematics fundraiser dinner, I created a series of mathematical table centerpieces. These are each eight inches in diameter and built on the hi-def color ZPrinter model 650 from 3D Systems. They vary in color and style, expressing different mathematical ideas in sculptural form. Some, like the above, convey an organic sensibility, while others are more geometric.
We can show only a few of the amazing Centerpieces here. You can see all twenty-three sculptures at Hart’s site at the link below.
