Turning tiles into kinetic art.


ART DIRECTION: Bryan Satalino


FEATURED: The Hatchery at Tyler School of Art \ Design Ideas


Arabesque is a set of magnetic wooden gears that were specially crafted. The gear’s unique shapes, and the patterns are designed to mimic the tile work in Islamic countries. Islamic artwork often centers around symmetry, so the line art on the gears sticks to a clear symmetrical design. The gears are minimally colored, as well as the branding, in order to place emphasis on the patterns, and the simplicity of the line work.
