Cellular Earrings by Nervous System

A pair of round cellular earrings in polished 3d-printed nylon. Two contrasting layers of pattern spiral towards an inner hold in this design creating a complex form that draws the eye.

Part of our Cell Cycle collection inspired by the complex forms of radiolarians, where intricate pattern is integral to structure, these shapes derive from a simulation of spring meshes enclosing an interstitial space. We created interactive software to morph, twist, and subdivide each design, transforming a simple mesh to a complex patterned structure.

The design is built up layer by layer in durable nylon plastic using Selective Laser Sintering, a kind of 3D printing. These forms would be impossible to create by traditional manufacturing methods.
