About this Product

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). This includes both from its center point out to its circumferential vertices, and the edges (vectors) connecting all of those vertices. Having the same form as a cuboctahedron, it was Buckminster Fuller who discovered the significance of the full vector symmetry in 1917 and called it the Vector Equilibrium in 1940. With all vectors being exactly the same length and angular relationship, from an energetic perspective, the VE 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 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 nonhappenings. It is the empty theater, the empty circus, the empty Universe ready to accommodate any act and any audience." If you are looking for a smaller version that can be worn as a pendant, please check out the Medium Vector Equilibrium or the Small Vector Equilibrium
