Zsanett Benedek and Dániel Lakos have been using 3D modeling softwares in their everyday lives. One day, they realized, that the triangles, the main elements of simulating complex surfaces, can create quite interesting formations, and there’s an opportunity for a great challenge if each triangle­based element has a different tilt.

We would like to see beautiful, one of a kind architectural concepts in stores more often, especially in the world of games, where it’s rare to see a toy that also reflects on contemporary design” says Dániel Lakos.
