This work is a smaller version of Constantin Flondor’s Trigona from 1974, now part of a few important collections like the MUMOK Collection in Vienna. Constantin Flondor explains: “I started with the triangular prismatic bars. The articulation functions determined the form. This determinism was stimulating me. Like some natural phenomena (the combinations of soap membranes, the manner in which bees construct a honeycomb, the formation of clouds, the structure of snowflakes…), my problem was coherently leading me towards one-truth solutions. I needed a creative intelligence which would obey this truth. (…)Initially, the results of this research bore the name of triangular prism knot, triangular prism combinations or spatial ensemble of triangular bars. Due to the analogy of the diamond-shaped sides of the diamond-shaped dodecahedron with the cells of the honeycomb, I ended up using the name „trigona”. It is an encounter between the name in geometry and crystallography and that in the world of various species of bees: Minima Trigona.”
