In celebration of Dutch Design Week 2016, our Shaping Dutch Design series will take a closer look at a few of the dozens of Dutch designers who are part of the Shapeways EXPO this year and, of course, our global maker community all year round. Make sure to visit us in person if you’re in Eindhoven this week, and follow us here, on Instagram, Twitter, and on Facebook for live updates from #DDW16.
Mathematician Jacobus “Koos” Verhoeff of MathArt Koos Verhoeff may be best known for his work in coding theory, but he’s also a prolific artist, creating gorgeous sculptures based on mathematical concepts. Luckily for us, Koos, along the Foundation MathArt Koos Verhoeff, has chosen to make models of his pieces available on Shapeways. Pieces like his Mobius Clover and Trefoil Knot inside Equilateral Triangle make for beautiful jewelry, while a model of his Bi-colored Torus Path is a museum-worthy work of art — perfect for anyone who loves geometric design.
You can take a look at Koos Verhoeff’s pieces in person this week at Shapeways EXPO at Dutch Design Week, and visit his Shapeways shop any time to customize your own work of mathematical art. Don’t miss the chance to own a piece by a great living artist who’s found a beautiful way to work at the intersection of science and art.
