Stainless Steel Bone Cuff
Designed by Nervous System
A striking cellular cuff in 3d-printed stainless steel, inspited by microscopic cellular structures.
The C-shaped design fits close to the skin, is light-weight and uses minimal material. It was built up layer by layer from stainless steel powder using 3D printing and fused in a kiln. The two layer form of the cuff would be impossible to create by traditional manufacturing methods. Its outer surfaces have a smooth, polished finish which contrasts with the unpolished interior to create an intricate, 3-dimensional cuff.
It is a part of our Cell Cycle collection which was inspired by the intricate mineral forms of Radiolarians. The form is the result of a physics simulation of the forces in a cellular network of springs. Nervous System has created custom software that allows them to create the design by morphing, twisting, and subdividing; transforming a simple mesh to a complex patterned structure.
