Artist Statement:


The design for Ratio.MGX is the result of a study of phyllotaxis (the principles governing leaf arrangement), mathematical structures, and the rational and irrational distribution patterns in nature. The lamp, together with the electric cables, rests unconnected in a concrete base. This allows the lamp to be taken out of its base and carried around like a torch. Ratio.MGX is the rational part of a twin design. The irrational counterpart has not yet been released.
