Construction kit for small modular sculptures. The angles and the shape of the parts refer to a specific multi-atomic structure of carbon (diamond cubic crystal structure).

»The diamond cubic crystal structure is a repeating pattern of 8.

Four sp³ orbitals form a tetrahedron.
The angle formed between these bonds is the same.
The shape of the orbital is named after the number of the orbitals involved.
The name »sp³« means there was one s orbital and three p orbitals that got hybridized.

You could use the modules in this box to build a diamond cubic crystal structure of your own.«
