Development of the Tile…

Natasha and I decided to create our tiles as triangles, with a very geometric pattern which would connect to each other in the following pattern:

So we began the rather long process of creating channels within the surface of the tile which would create this hexagonal pattern-

After creating this tile shape we added a line to be etched into the surface to add interest:

So the above shape was what we took to Loren to be simulated, however with her help we managed to push our design further to look more beautiful and also to work better with the technology used to create the foam tile.

We added to the design hight to the three main triangles, we well as curving out the channels inside, which now lead to a circular disk in the center, rather than a triangle.

Final simulation with etching.
