size: 7.75" circle
material: 1/4" birch plywood
number of pieces: approximately 80
packaging: black box with unique label
To create the organic shape of the pieces, we designed a system based the simulation of dendritic solidification, a crystal growth process similar to the formation of snowflakes that occurs in supercooled solutions of certain metallic alloys. By varying the parameter space, it can produce a variety of cut styles. You can read about how our simulation works here.
