Infinite Box

How big is this 20-sided polyhedron known as an icosahedron? Its interior doesn’t seem to fit into its outer limits.

There is no contradiction of course – the sides are made of semi-transparent glass that reflects strips of lamps located along the inside edges while allowing you to look inside as well. Since some light escapes with each reflection, the lights seem to get ever dimmer the “deeper” you look.
