Mexican Chiral Hypercube

Undoubtedly, one of the most elaborated pieces that has come out of Estudio Cerisola, is based on the discovery conducted by the team of mathematicians directed by Dr. Javier Bracho “El Roli” at the Autonomous National University of Mexico (UNAM), who named this new geometric figure “Cubo de Roli” honoring this scientist´s name.

The construction of this piece was commissioned by the University Museum of Sciences, UNIVERSUM to Estudio Cerisola.

The complexity of its production led Pedro Cerisola to consider numerous material possibilities, until wicker production was reached as the best alternative. The wicker is both a flexible and solid material.

The final piece is a product that can play with the light producing a series of shadows and viewing possibilities from different angles that have turned it into one of the favorite pieces by visitors to the Mathematics Room at the Universum museum.

This is a unique Piece in permanent exhibition at the Universum Museum in Mexico City.
