Each object you create starts as a basic hexagonal mesh which you can change as much, or as little, as you want with a variety of tools. Choose a sharp, geometric look or a rounded, more organic style. Use attractive and repulsive forces to disrupt the pattern’s initial symmetry, or give it a twist with spiraling forces. Click inside any cell to subdivide it into three smaller cells — those smaller cells can even be further subdivided to add more intricate detail to your design.

Liquid Glacial Table

1. Februar 2013 - 10:11 Uhr

The Liquid Glacial Table by Zaha Hadid Architects (London) „embeds surface complexity and refraction within a powerful fluid dynamic.“


„The elementary geometry of the flat table top appears transformed from static to fluid by the subtle waves and ripples evident below the surface, while the table’s legs seem to pour from the horizontal in an intense vortex of water frozen in time.“


„The transparent acrylic material amplifies this perception; adding depth and complexity through a flawless display of infinite kaleidoscopic refractions.“


„The result generates a wonderful surface dynamic that inherits a myriad of colours from its context and continually adapts with the observer’s changing viewpoint.“
