“O circle, where would we be without you. As the mother of all radii, arcs, and curves, you give us the ability to create objects that “we the people” can relate to. Your wholeheartedness and endless continuity provide us with inspiration and a sense of inner peace.”
According to Wikipedia, the term “circle” may be used to refer to either the boundary of the figure or to the whole figure including its interior; in strict technical usage, the circle is only the boundary and the whole figure is called a disk. A disk is said to be closed if it contains the circle that constitutes its boundary, and open if it does not. Open Disk by Daphna Laurens is an ode to the shape dat designers owe so much to, inspired on this mathematical reality.
