icosahedral 3D surface

As an experiment, we attached a three-dimensional curved surface derived from an equilateral triangular pyramid to an icosahedron by straining it through a mulberry tree.

A botanist from Australia, who came to see the experiment, excitedly took a lot of pictures of it, saying, “It looks like the smallest shape of a plant cell! He was very excited and took a lot of pictures.

I have always been inspired by nature and plants in my design work, but this time I was very surprised to find that the design I had created happened to match the cellular level of the natural world.

We were also very happy that the botanist liked the design.
