Girih Tiles by Max

Another beautiful lasercut project from Max:

I (Gav) started playing around with lasercut Penrose tiles, mathematically very cool since they never repeat, even on an infinite plane. The downside is they are pretty fiddly to use and assemble since you have to follow the ‘rules’ about how they can join. 

We then started trying out Girih Tiles, which are used in traditional Islamic architecture. Max made this beautiful layered set by using paper on acrylic as a mask for spraying the paint:

They’re astoundingly fun to play with, and I can see we’ll be making a lot more soon.
