Greek mathematician Euclid of Alexandria, aka the Father of Geometry, is most known for his 13-book treatise, Elements, which was one of the most influential textbooks in math’s history from 300 B.C. to the late 19th century/early 20th century. In one of the books, Euclid described the solid polyhedron and how it was constructed and that is the basis for Siba Sahibi’s Euclid tables.
The trio of dramatic metal tables feature flat polygonal faces, sharp corners, and straight edges, and are finished with a paper coating. Each of the side tables is made out of four components that consist of seven triangular elements to make up the surface and legs.
