One of a Kind Several of our designs come in series of all unique pieces, each one grown as a one of a kind design using our generative systems. There are also apps in the shop that allow you to interact with our systems and design your own pieces.
Algae The Algae collection was inspired by the branching forms of plants and algae.
Ammonite Ammonite is inspired by the interlocking suture patterns found in the fossilized cephalopods called ammonites. The forms themselves are grown through a simulation of dendritic solidification, a process related to supercooled crystal growth.
Cell Cycle A collection of 3-dimensional cellular jewelry inspired by the microscopic shells of radiolarians. The complex forms were created through simulations of the physical forces in a cellular network. Each piece is built up layer by layer using 3d-printing. You can use our interactive webGL app to morph, twist, and subdivide; transforming a simple mesh to a complex patterned structure.
Dendrite Stainless steel is cut into delicate forms inspired by the aggregate, branching growth of dendritic crystals and coral. The patterns are generated by diffusion limited aggregation, a process whereby randomly moving particles gradually accrete into complex configurations by colliding and sticking to one another.ac
Generative Jigsaw Puzzles Jigsaw puzzles for the 21st century! Each generative puzzle is a one of a kind creation with unique art and pieces. Our goal was to marry the artistry of traditional, hand-crafted jigsaw puzzles with the possibilities of new technologies.
Hyphae Hyphae is a collection of 3D printed artifacts constructed of rhizome-like networks. Inspired vein structures, we created a simulation which uses physical growth principles to build sculptural, organic structures. Starting from an initial seed and a surface, we grow a hierarchical network where nodes constantly branch and merge.
Kinematics Kinematics is a system for 4D printing that creates complex, foldable forms composed of articulated modules.
Laplacian Organic 3-dimensional branching forms grown using a numerical model of isotropic dendritic solidification and produced in precious metal using 3D printing.
Radiolaria Lace-like structures are cut from silicone rubber and etched out of stainless steel.
The pattern displays shifts in direction and scale, creating a sense of movement and tension. These complex forms recall those of radiolarians, plant cells and even the familiar honey comb.
Reaction Sculptural ceramics and lamps created by simulating reaction-diffusion, a process that mimics how organisms form patterns
Xylem A jewelry collection based on the process of vein formation in leaves. Our simulation models how the flow of growth horomones causes complex networks of veins to form. The resultant pieces explore the breadth of possible patterning and create impossible, unnatural forms combining the geometric and organic.
