According to its designer, John Edmark's Helicone is a kinetic sculpture that amplifies "our awareness of the sometimes tenuous relationship between facts and perception.” Inspired by nature and based on the Fibonacci numbers, Helicone packs some pretty unexpected behavior into what appears to be a fairly simple object.
Utilizing 42 pieces of excruciatingly precise plastic, unique internal mechanisms, and a stainless steel tube, Helicone completely transforms at the twist of your hand. Each Helicone includes a display stand. The Color Helicone is a vibrantly-colored sibling to the original Beechwood Helicone.
