Square Wave’s campaign on Kickstarter just ended, and we decided to show to you how we thought and how we make this amazing kinetic artwork, now available on Indiegogo! We started from Ivan Black’s Square Wave project, with his 21 connected metal rods connected to create complex fluid structures.

Ivan Black’s idea was to combine iconic natural forms with mathematical formulae and is inspired by the Fibonacci sequence, the basic structure that is the foundation of most of Mother Nature creations.

While it spins, Square Wave generates a series of mind-bending optical illusions and unexpected hypnotizing revolutions, that mesmerizes our eyes! Designed in the UK and made in Italy, Square Wave is available in 3 spectacular finishes: metallic silver, eclipse bronze, and lunar gold. Each one creates unique mesmerizing reflections and three diverse optical illusions.

Square Wave is 9,8 x 9,8 in (25 x 25 cm) and it's made of high quality chrome plated steel. It is manufactured in a factory with a 30 years history in metal machining in Italy. It is assembled and tested by hand and it is suitable for both indoor and outdoor usage.

Ivan Black is an award winning artist (Cottesloe Acquisition Award 2016, Darc Magazine Ceiling, best decorative pendant/chandelier for "Nebula" 2017) born in London. His work reflects mathematical patterns found in nature like waves, leaves, shells, the human form etc. Tending towards the minimalist in design, his work reveals how order silently governs our world. His work has been exhibited at galleries and sculpture parks worldwide including the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, The Cass Foundation, Flowers East, Sculpture by the Sea Australia, Interart Sculpture Park Netherlands, Palmyra Sculpture Centre Mallorca, Kinetica museum, and the Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden.

Square Wave is the first item of the collection Ivan Black x Atellani. Our aim is to combine beautiful pieces of kinetic art with precision mechanical machinery, making these incredible sculptures available worldwide!
