Product Description
The design of these cubes was inspired by the concrete block designed by Frank Lloyd Wright called the 'Ennis Block'. It was used on a few homes Wright designed as well as in some Hollywood movie sets like 'Blade Runner'. Wright's design was an exercise in 'shifted squares' which resulted in an asymmetrical motif. Because the design is NOT perfectly symmetrical about the diagonal, each cube I created in the series had to resolve the asymmetry issue differently depending on how the corners and edges were arranged.

Cube 04. This cube was the fourth cube in the design series. Ironically, the last cube brought the entire design exercise full circle because it is the original Wright design in the most purist form. Taking the lessons learned from the second and third cube designs, I was able to map a single motif to each of the 6 faces of the cube. Just like the second & third cubes, the motif has some thickness and the relief is mirrored on the backside. The extra thickness worked in the same manner as the second & third cubes enabling the edges of the faces to be fully connected. Only subtle deviations were made so that edges of one motif would align with the motif on the adjacent face(s). I still incorporated voids to add a dynamic depth to the entire design and the relief is evident on the inside faces of the cube.

When this cube is printed in Polished Nickel, it weighs approx. 19oz. and is very impressive to hold in your hand!
