Complexity and Modularity

Derived from a five-fold symmetric pattern, the underlying substrate for the tiling is a mathematical grid that appears irregular, yet is made of few constituent parts.

The new, non-orthogonal grid creates a seemingly non-repetitive, tiled pattern, resulting in visual randomness, a desirable aesthetic that is typically achieved through bespoke design and expense.

The modularity of the system enables complex architectural shapes to be accessible, benefiting from economies of scale.

While the pattern resembles organic growth, the system is still composed with only two repeating modules.
