The Wenger Cube, a truncated hexahedron. The cube was first designed in 1970 in Santa Cruz, California. The idea had come while making structures for an artist. The task was to make a solid cube and to cut off a portion of one corner. After making the object I decided to see what the result would be of removing the corner completely. The result was an object with a triangular face that when placed on that face produced a shape with three sloping roof sections. The idea of making a large version came quickly.
