From 1935-1938 Max Bill created “Fifteen Variations on a Single Theme”.
Variation 1 created in 1935 sets the modular rules, or as Bill states, “defined limits” for the subsequent variations to follow. Jean-Pierre Herbert later named the underpinning form, Metagon - a regular, open, possibly infinite polygonal line developed in two or more dimensions following a serial rule of expansion.

”..once the basic theme has been chosen – whether it be simple or complex – an infinite number of very different developments can be evolved according to individual inclination and temperament.”
- Max Bill, Zurich November 1938
