THE HEXASPHERICON

The Sphericon family is a group of Paradoxical Solids —three-dimensional figures with geometrical characteristics that seem self-contradictory— constructed by cutting a solid of revolution in half and rejoining it at a 90º turn.

We believe human sensibility and intelligence have made sense of the universe and its knowledge through art and science, that’s how we know things around us are ruled by laws bigger than common perception.

The Sphericon is a shape discovered not long ago. The Englishman Colin J. Roberts was one of the first people who studied it and was amazed by its unique properties: like the fact that its center of gravity always remains at the same height above the floor on which it rolls and the unexpected and entertaining path that it creates while it is moving from side to side, touching the floor with all its surface.

The Hexasphericon is created with a solid of revolution from an hexagon, it also has one continuous surface and two discontinuous edges.
