There’s a new genius on the scene, and we’re excited to introduce Sierpinski! This geometric pattern is fresh, fun and far from obtuse! Multi-color triangles in blues, greens, and reds act in congruence to help this print take shape!
Inspired by Wacław Sierpinski, this limited-edition print is available now in bumGenius and Flip Diapers — and you have a chance to add one to your stash! All you have to do is think outside the box and comment with a fun fact about any of the geniuses featured in our Genius Series prints. One person will win a bumGenius Freetime in Sierpinski.
Wacław Sierpinski was a Polish mathematician, known for his work on set theory, number theory and the theory of functions and topology. He delivered the first-ever lecture course on theory, and has published more than 700 papers and 50 books on this subject. Sierpinski has received numerous awards and recognitions for his contributions to mathematics. He has three well-known fractals in his honor, including the Sierpinski triangle. This figure forms a geometric pattern, as the midpoints of each side of the triangle are connected, creating four additional triangles in which the sides are connected, allowing infinitely many possible iterations if repeated.
