Does this piece remind you of something you once saw in a science textbook or journal? There’s a reason. Nervous System bases its designs on forms in nature, such as dividing cells. The Porous Bracelet features a complexly patterned structure created from twisting and subdividing a simple hexagonal mesh. Inspired by forms of radiolarians, microscopic creatures with mineral exoskeletons, this bracelet is both intricate and strong, created with selective laser sintering, a type of 3D printing.
Two tech, design, science, and math-savvy MIT alumni founded Nervous System in 2007. Based in Somerville, MA, they make jewelry and housewares in the likeness of nature’s forms, from leaf veins to tiny sea creatures. Using a 3D printer, the team turns digital designs mimicking nature’s organic patterns into intricate works in materials like nylon and stainless steel.
