This woven pattern gives to Julie Thissen bags their unique appearance but also a functional advantage: the retro-reflective material infact lights-up at night under the front lights of passing cars, making the cycler more visible to surrounding traffic. “The starting point of the project is the wish for the bags to fulfill three requests which at first seem almost contradictory” says Julie Thissen. Practicality, efficiency and a reduction to the essential should not be at all opposed to an aesthetic, well designed approach of “The Cyclist” bags.

Mais les Étrusques, malgré les grands rapports qu’ils présentent aussi avec les Grecs, s’en séparent néanmoins par quelques points essentiels et notamment par l’emploi de la voûte dont ils ont fait usage des la plus haute antiquité. Le style romain s’est formé par le mélange du goût étrusque et du goût grec. La conquête de la Grèce par les Romains marque une transformation complète dans l’art comme dans la situation des artistes. Les grands, pour gagner le peuple par l’éclat et la magnificence des fêtes, attirent à Rome un grand nombre d’artistes grecs, en même temps qu’ils apportent dans la ville éternelle des chefs-d’œuvre de toute sorte volés dans les sanctuaires de la Grèce. A l’origine, les généraux romains mettaient une sorte de modération dans leurs rapines. Aigre que chez les Grecs. Ral. Des machines magnétiques à dessiner sur le sable.

These Mesmerizing GIFs Illustrate the Art of Traditional Japanese Wood Joinery. These Mesmerizing GIFs Illustrate the Art of Traditional Japanese Wood Joinery For centuries before the invention of screws and fasteners, Japanese craftsmen used complex, interlocking joints to connect pieces of wood for structures and beams, helping to create a uniquely Japanese wood aesthetic that can still be seen in the works of modern masters like Shigeru Ban.

Up until recent times, however, these techniques were often the carefully guarded secrets of family carpentry guilds and unavailable for public knowledge. Even as the joints began to be documented in books and magazines, their 2-dimensional depictions remained difficult to visualize and not found in any one comprehensive source. That is, until a few years ago, when a young Japanese man working in automobile marketing began compiling all the wood joinery books he could get his hands on and using them to creating his own 3-dimensional, animated illustrations of their contents.

Introduction to Arabesque.

In the book arts, Islimi is used to illuminate calligraphic headings and within shamsahs (little suns) which are palmettes that divide verses of text.

Introduction to Arabesque

Most famously it is interwoven with geometric patterns to create beautiful frontispieces (the first page of the Quran). Islimi is a key architectural feature, examples can be found in ornate ceramic, stone, plaster and wood carved friezes. Islimi designs are also found embellishing domestic objects such as utensils, cloths and carpets. Motifs and styles / Origins and development Islimi designs gradually emerged as the floral, vegetative style of Islamic art in various forms around the world. Drawings, Diagrams & Analyses.

In this article we discuss whether traditional Islamic geometric patterns exhibit the distinguishing structural properties of quasicrystals.

We present two case studies that examine candidate examples from the western and eastern schools of Islamic ornament. In both cases, researchers made a hypothesis that the Islamic patterns have quasiperiodic features, both found that their model does not match the data, yet both found reasons to discard the errors and accept the model, rather than search for an alternative explanation.

This has led to widespread confusion about the status of claims concerning quasiperiodic Islamic ornament, a situation that became clear to me during discussions at a recent conference, and which motivated me to write up these notes. In both case studies, the language and tools of crystallography are applied to analyse Islamic patterns.
