Sanmiittai is a new product which you can use to create designs with constructions based on sacred geometry and mathematical art. This design is the core of the construction and beautiful to look at. But my aim is to create all the possible different building blocks, so the user can create his or her own design.

The Vector Equilibrium is formed by pointing 8 tetrahedrons inwards, the exact opposite of the Star Tetrahedron.

The Vector Equilibrium, as its name describes, is the only geometric form wherein all of the vectors are of equal length and angular relationship (60° angles throughout). From a physics standview it represents the ultimate and perfect condition wherein the movement of energy comes to a state of absolute equilibrium, and therefore absolute stillness and nothingness. As Buckminster Fuller states, because of this it is the zero-phase from which all other forms emerge.

“The vector equilibrium is the zero starting point for happenings or non happenings: it is the empty theater and empty circus and empty Universe ready to accommodate any act and any audience.”
- Buckminster Fuller

Please note: This model could use some perfection, therefor it's still a prototype version. We used this model for the photography, see photos.
