Trend Report: Tetrahedron-Inspired Design

March 5, 2013 | Alex

I've long nurtured a love for all objects faceted and polyhedron-inspired. A big trend these past couple years. Lately, though, I've been noticing a sub-trend-- design inspired by tetrahedrons specifically. A tetrahedron is a polyhedron with four triangular faces, three of which meet at each vertex. So while not all of these are, strictly speaking, tetrahedrons they certainly take their cues from the 4-faced platonic solid.
