I like both simple and complex design, but in most cases they are separate to each other. A Spirograph Drawing Set inspires me that a simple element through regularly duplicate can also create complex beauty. So I want to take this as a start point to investigate how to use simple element to create complex but regular object. 

BEAUTY OF

REGULARITY 

SIMPLE  COMPLEX  AND  REGULAR : As we all known the triangle is simplest stable structure, and the pyramid is the simplest 3D object which consist of three triangle. So can I use this simple element to make a complex but regular table?

The top surface of the pyramid can be the table top,  the  three arrises can act as the support structures. 

Through the experiment, I found a the solution can be simpler, just use a single space curve, the table top can be supported. 

As the figure showed above. A simpler solution.

Since one space curve is not strong enough, I duplicate another two of them to make the table more stable.

Make the structure more reasonable in a aesthetic way. 

The result. 

The form fallow the structure
