Design Miami / El Sol

El Sol is a cosmic geodesic dome designed to scale, one billion times smaller than the sun, and composed of 2,880 custom made Swarovski crystals. Designer Fernando Romero found inspiration for his design in the sacred geometry used by the ancient Aztecs and Mayans in constructing their pyramids. The sculpture’s outer surface is covered in iridescent triangular shaped crystals that enhance the light discharged from the installation’s core, a spherical pool of LED’s who’s light is refracted by the facets.
