This week for the Science Museum Media Space's 'Why I Like This' series, I wrote about something I don't just like, I love: a sample of lace based on the crystalline structure of a mineral. It was made in 1951 for the Festival of Britain and came out of a collaboration between crystallographers and designers called the Festival Pattern Group. Read about it here!
