Have you ever thought something was beautiful and it felt just right, but couldn’t articulate why? In this intriguing, ‘I wish I had known this years ago‘, presentation, secrets will be revealed showing how the Fibonacci numbers: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, etc... are the basis for the 62% width-to-height Golden Rectangle in creating masterpieces in art and architecture, even music and the stock market.
Be fascinated by the Golden Ratio/Fibonacci sequence found throughout the universe from the microscopic mesmerizing spirals of the Nautilus seashell to the telescopic rings around Saturn. This program brings to life how nature and our DNA influence design by observing the proportions of your finger and a pretty face, along with sunflowers, pineapples and animals.
By appreciating ‘Geometry in Nature’, properly sized cabinetry become more than mere boxes. Studying the time-tested classics of Leonardo Da Vinci and Notre Dame, traditional symmetry attains a refreshing new aesthetic for the proverbial white Shaker kitchen. Imagine the glow on the customers’ faces when they were told their cabinet composition has the same proportions as the Taj Mahal! Modernists including Frank Lloyd Wright create balance, as on a see-saw, that goes beyond minimal to 3-dimensional horizontal and vertical movement towards the focal point.
Proportion expert Mark Rosenhaus with 35 years in the kitchen and bath industry, celebrates this elementary geometry with his enlightening seminar. The goal of this presentation is to energize your innate intuition to create art with cabinetry imbued with that timeless quality which sets you apart from the competition. And, maybe even answer why you love design.
At the end of this session, you will:
- Discover how the 62% Golden Proportion, based on the Fibonacci numbers reveals the geometry of nature to create forms and balance considered the standard of beauty.
- Recognize the similar proportions found everywhere from the microscopic spirals of the Nautilus seashell to the rings of Saturn and masterpieces of art and architecture.
- Calculate the Golden Rectangle using real numbers and create designs that are true works of art while furthering kitchen design and setting you apart from the competition.
