The Golden Rectangle Illustrations by Mike Del Rizzo; Lead photo courtesy of Rob Brown, Equinox Interiors.The golden rectangle is a proportion (or ratio) found in nature, in the solar system, and even in your own body.
It is believed that when this natural proportion is designed into a piece of art (or woodworking project), that the resulting design is perceived as balanced or pleasing.What makes this proportion so pleasing? Without being overly technical, it's the equation [1+√5]/2 = Φ that makes it work.
The Greek letter Phi (Φ) represents the golden ratio or the golden mean, which can be expressed as the value 1.618.In a golden rectangle, the longer dimension will be 1.618 times the length of the shorter dimension.
If you happen to add the lengths of the two sides together, you would also find that the golden ratio applies to the sum of the two sides relative to the longer of the two original dimensions.This is a naturally occurring proportion that repeats itself easily.
In nature, this proportion can be found everywhere, from the human body (where the eyes are set in the head) to the spacing of the planets from the sun.The same ratio can be found in...
