“Inner Space” reflects the beauty and intricacies of geometry in nature. It started with a deep fascination of patterns and forms found in the most microscopic corners of our world along with those found in the far reaches of space. This balance and congruity between micro and macro is what drives our designs. Whether it’s the beautiful pentagonal orbit of Venus/Earth or the irregular patterns within plant cells, this project brings those designs to life through intricate mandalas that aim to bring the viewer in for a closer look.
