INCOMING HEXAGONS! / 18 January 2015
At HEXOPOLIS HQ we’re getting ready for an exhibition about our on-going research, highlighting key themes in omnipresent hexagons. Once you start looking, you may notice they are everywhere, near and far, ubiquitous and astonishing.
At Saturn's North Pole there is a hexagonal vortex of cloud larger than Earth. Flat-pack furniture is typically held together with hexagon socket bolts and assembled with a free Allen (hex) key.
Hexagons are currently a big design trend: hexagon wallpaper, hexagon bathroom tiles, hexagon seats, hexagon snack foods, hexagonal patterns in online design, and even hexagon drones. What is it with this nexus of hexagons?
During the exhibition and Hexopolis project we will be collecting and examining hexagons in search of their implicit message, and our pervasive interest in them.
Have you spotted any hexagons lately?
