Carina / Trapezoidal Hexacontahedron

Mathematically, this structure shows the dual relationship between two Platonic solids:
the icosahedron and the dodecahedron.

Merged together, they create the trapezoidal hexecontahedron, a Catalan solid with 60 trapezoidal faces. This piece is assembled and welded manually by
master blacksmiths from Mexico City.

This unique piece is fabricated from a single module that repeats itself 30 times to create a perfect sphere. Each module is constructed by a set of two different pieces of laser cut stainless steel.

Due to the resistance of the material, it can be installed both indoors and outdoors.
