a famous mathematician euler discovered a simple formula that accounts for the number of faces (F), corners (C) and the number of edges (E) in simple shapes: he found that F + C – E = 2 for many shapes.(where F, C and E are the numbers of face, corners and edges).


for example take a cube (die) it has 6 faces, 8 corners and 12 edges so we get 6 + 8 – 12 = 2, which works. now in a football we have 60 corners and each corner has three edges (which themselves go between two corners). this means there are 3/2 edges for each corner giving a total for the whole ball of 60 x 3/2= 90 edges. how about the ‘quilt’ sofa?


established & sons will show the new collection at la pelota via palermo 10, milan, italy
