Inspired by the complex forms of radiolarians, where intricate pattern is integral to structure, these shapes derive from a simulation of spring meshes. Nervous System created interactive software to morph, twist, and subdivide each design, transforming a simple mesh to a complex patterned structure.
The final design is built up layer by layer in stainless steel using metal 3D printing and infused with bronze.
The rings are coated in a plastic clear coat to help prevent oxidization but with use will oxidize over time.
stainless steel, bronze-infused
Available in different sizes
