 VITRUVIAN

The design is inspired by a font.


In 1497, the Italian mathematician Luca Pacioli wrote the famous "De Divina Proportione," which discussed the use of the golden section in art, arithmetic, and architecture and draw precise illustrations.

In the chapter discussing architecture, Pacioli redrawn the Roman alphabet. He followed Feliciano's "square and circle" structure, but made new adjustments to the thickness of the strokes to make the letters more calligraphic and nested in a square frame symmetrically. In the Renaissance era, humanist scholars held in deep respect for the architecture, art, philosophy, etc.

Words should also have perfect forms.

 

The Esc key is a 48 equilateral semi-regular polyhedron. Its surface is composed of 18 congruent squares and 8 congruent triangles. It is derived from the crystal polyhedron in the upper left corner of the screen. This is also seen in Leonardo’s illustrations. A three-dimensional frame diagram of a semi-regular polyhedron; in contrast, there is a regular 12 -hedron model on top of the box-like object in the lower right corner of the screen . The individual key icons are derived from five kinds of Platonic geometry.

So there is this "Sacred Proportion". On the basis of the original Latin alphabet building, the design of numbers 0-9 is added, and the geometric composition method is used to shift, tab, enter and other keys. Due to the fineness and complexity of the font, this keycap uses the XDA height with a larger contact surface.

After the last IC, the sub-kit and red personality were updated, and the positive and negative colors were added.
