Theme: SIGGRAPH Core

The design for Ratio.mgx is a result of a study of phyllotaxis (the principles governing leaf arrangement), mathematical structures, and the rational and irrational distribution patterns in nature. The lamp, together with the electricity cables, rests unconnected in a concrete base, which makes it possible to take the lamp out of its base like a torch. Ratio.mgx, which was introduced at the Recapito Milanese fair in Milan, Italy, is the rational part of a twin design. The irrational counterpart has not yet been released.
