Johannes Molin created the Infinite Tree for Areaware out of his love and memory of the Scandinavian forest as seen through the lens of his degree in mathematics.
This tree is designed using measurements from the Golden Ratio, a universal proportional system that is thought to play a role in the human perception of beauty.
Johannes Molin is a Swedish born designer and mathematician. Having spent his youth in the forested countryside of Sweden, he fell in love with the beauty of wood. After graduating from the University of Gothenburg with a degree in mathematics and science, he went on to a career in teaching, furniture making and interior design. Johannes finds inspiration in classic Scandinavian design and the grace and proportions of mathematical expressions. He believes that beauty can be imagined through the purity of algorithms in combination with the idiosyncrasies of wood. Johannes built his own house, finding the most joy in constructing a beautifully twisted staircase from the climbing ash tree of his childhood.
