Massive 3D printed wall features algorithmically generated details.
It plays with the aniconic, geometric tradition of arabesque ornaments by creating intricate constellations that are at once figurative and abstract.
Arabesque Wall’s rhythmic, interwoven curve elicit viewers’ individual interpretations and engage viewers to approach it, touch it and to explore.
Each perspective offers new impressions.
Just as arabesque ornaments, the compositional principles of the Arabesque Wall are both geometric and mathematical.
They are based on an iterative tiling and division of a surface.
An algorithm folds a single surface over and over again until a structure composed of millions of individual surfaces emerge.
Shifting the design process to this abstract level has a dramatic impact, creating a complexity and richness of detail that would otherwise be almost impossible for a designer to specify or conceive of.
