In prehistoric times, the nautilus revived the seas. It's a squid, found only in tropical waters today. The perfect and intriguing shape of this ancient sea dweller is recreated in the nautilus spiral with just a piece of paper.


This shape is also called a logarithmic spiral or equiangular spiral. Many spiral shapes are found in nature, e.g. snails, sunflowers, pineapples, which fascinate us again and again because of their regularity and mathematical structure.


The banner combines biology, mathematics, visuals.

Design and emotional experience for an original window decoration.
