Hex Applications

 

 

Six, Spectacular Sides

What has six sides and looks spectacular in a design? The hexagon! Read on and consider adding this geometric great to your office.

 

Wonder of Science

Hexagons hold a special place in nature and science. The shape can be found everywhere from beehives to tortoise shells; from snowflakes to lava columns. This Interesting Engineering article explains why the shape keeps reappearing and the significance of its structure. 

 

Efficiency and Strength

The article points out that the shape helps maximize use of space: “It was found that if a series of circles were packed on top of each other, there were empty spaces in between them. The only way in which these empty spaces can be avoided is by changing the shape to a hexagon.” In the case of nuts and bolts, the shape helps to leverage more force: “With hexagons, the tool edges find it much easier to grip the bolt. This means that more torque can be transferred to the bolt.” 

 

Power of the Polygon

Maybe all these applications are what make the shape of the hexagon so visually appealing–we inherently know it packs a punch. So, how can you take this shape and incorporate it into your space? Look no further than Hex, a stunning hexagonal wall hanging from Ghent, has the options of a glass, fabric, steel, or acoustic surface.
