A more than 100 year-old classic for your own desk, in a modern, improved version!
In 1869, Christian Wiener constructed the first model of a cubic surface with 27 lines (in plaster, by hand!). This achievement opened the way for many similar objects in the following couple of years.
One of the most famous of these is certainly the one of the Clebsch Diagonal Surface which had been studied by Alfred Clebsch. Its model was probably planned by Alfred Clebsch and Felix Klein. Compared to the historical model, our version has the advantage that it only shows the surface itself and not a large body of plaster material as a support which is not part of the surface and which distracts from the pure geometry of the surface.
Part of the aesthetics of our objects comes from the fact that we chose to represent the surface in such a way that the ratio between the height and the width of our object is the so-called golden ratio.
