Math + Design

Bullseye Glass Quick Tip:

This Quick Tip shows you how to combine the power of mathematics and the beauty of metallics to create an awesome design!

The Fibonacci sequence is a numbering system found in nature, from flower petals to seashells. It’s pleasing to the eye (even if you’re not aware of it) and a versatile design tool. The sequence starts with a one, followed by a one. Each subsequent number is equal to the sum of the preceding two numbers: F (1) = 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21...

For this project, Bullseye translated the beginning of this Fibonacci sequence into centimeters and arranged them to transition from one color to another. Pretty cool, right!
