## Golden ratio & Fibonacci

The Golden cut

Proportions based on the golden ratio have been the epitome of beauty and aesthetics since ancient times. This perfect balance can still be found today in art, architecture, design, etc.

The golden ratio is evident everywhere in nature and is reflected in the products.
It arises from the equality of proportions when the larger part is related to the smaller part as the whole is related to the larger part. The formula for this size ratio is the phi number 1,618, known from mathematics.

All glass and porcelain products are carefully designed according to these standards. So every piece is a real treat for the eye.

The Fibonacci number sequence in nature

The Fibonacci number sequence is based on the same principle as the golden ratio and describes the characteristics of growth processes that can be found in nature, for example, in flowers and leaves. This occurs, for example, in left- and right-handed spirals with a ratio of 8 to 13 or 21 to 34 (all numbers in the Fibonacci sequence). If you divide these numbers by one another, the result is always 1.618, known as "Phi" or the golden ratio.

Every single core in the flower head of a sunflower belongs to a left-handed and a right-handed spiral. It is noteworthy that the number of spirals is without exception only neighboring numbers from the Fibonacci number sequence. In sunflowers you will always find spiral combinations of 21/34, 34/55, 55/89 and especially in large sunflowers 89/144 kernels. This principle also applies to daisies, pine nuts, cabbage, pineapples, etc.

Fibonacci number sequence:
1+1=2, 1+2=3, 2+3=5, 3+5=8, 5+8=13 ...
21+34=55, 34+55=89, 55+89=144 ...

The ratio between two consecutive numbers in the Fibonacci sequence is always 1.62, which is the golden ratio. 34:21 = 1.62 55:34 = 1.62 89:55 = 1.62
