This Demonstration shows two-dimensional square and labyrinth tilings based on Octonacci (Pell) and Fibonacci sequences, respectively [1, 2]. Such objects have been widely investigated in order to understand the interplay between quasiperiodicity and electronic structure in quasicrystals. Both tilings can be obtained from the grid (tensorial) product of two identical quasiperiodic chains.
