The geometry of the Welles allows us to build seemingly infinite configurations with the repetition of a single module. The form, which is known as a Cuboctahedron, is a platonic solid that, thanks to its geometry, tessellates in space in a way that generates very organic arrangements. Welles fixtures are made by connecting these forms to one another using the triangular faces. As the connections are made to the truncated faces, the result is a sculptural organic structure that simultaneously adopts a geometric expression.
The flexibility of the Welles has inspired designers and architects to develop bespoke versions for projects all over the world. In celebration of Gabriel Scott's 10 anniversary, six international designers and architects have reinterpreted the Welles and designed their own fixtures.
