The 31.6 Glass Set is a group of 8 individual glass elements designed to be arranged into varying compositions that reveal new colors and shapes relationships. The forms of 31.6 are inspired by a mathematical particularity known as the five-fold geometry of Penrose Tiling. The colors of the glassware result from jealously guarded formulas in the Czech glass-making tradition, some of which date back to the 1600s. These formulas are in the custody of various glass masters in the Czech Republic, passed on and refined from generation to generation, often employing peculiar and arcane ingredients such as animal bones, plants, and minerals gathered from the Czech countryside.
