Cell Cycle Jewelry – Mathematics and Biological Architecture
Nervous System is a design studio that works at the intersection of science, art, and technology. We create using a novel process that employs computer simulation to generate designs and digital fabrication to realize products. Drawing inspiration from natural phenomena, we write computer programs mimicking processes and patterns found in nature and use those programs to create unique and affordable art, jewelry, and housewares.
Progress in science and technology offers new opportunities in different industries. Scientific progress penetrates even such conservative areas like Jewellery. Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg developed an interesting way to create a mathematical jewelry. Jessica Rosenkrantz graduated from MIT in 2005 and holds degrees in Architecture and Biology. Jesse Louis-Rosenberg also attended MIT, majoring in Mathematics. They founded Nervous System in 2007. At site of the company everyone can pass a simple algorithm, which eventually will give a pattern for jewelry most suitable for you.
Cell Cycle is a collection of 3D printed nylon, stainless steel and sterling silver jewelry. Jewelry can be one of two colors white or black. Jessica and Jesse have developed software for creating 3D model using their unique algorithms. Resulting jewelry is created using a process called Selective Laser Sintering. For iPad owners they are developing a special application.
