The aim of this workshop is to construct a beautiful centered hexagonal number trivet by making use of colored recycled magazine paper. What is seemingly only a funny and very simple puzzle made with circular tiles, composing intriguing and colored artistic objects, is an engaging exercise in the field of mathematics applied to eco-design process.
