Brooksbank & Collins’ Do-Rey is an exercise exploring growth and self-similarity, inspired by the work of Benoit B. Mandelbrot 1924 – 2010, a Polish-born mathematician. Within the overall shape of Do-Rey there lies a repetitive pattern that can be divided down into smaller and smaller sections.

Do-Rey is a universal form found in nature and is also a form used for human’s most advanced technology. The hexagonal pattern is used for the mirror for the James Webb Space Telescope: a Space Observatory due to launch in 2018 which will expand our knowledge and understanding of the universe.

Do-Rey is a universe within itself, it can grow in a regular pattern or it can grow chaotically dependent on conditions.

Do-Rey can be used practically as tableware; coaster, placemat, centerpiece and combinations of units can be used to fill the plane of a tabletop.
