Vessel Pendant by Nervous System

A fine network of vessels defines the surface of this crescent-shaped pendant which was inspired by how veins form in leaves. The densely interconnected structure of 3d-printed nylon is at once airy and strong. An 18" sterling silver chain is threaded through the layers of the necklace.

Hyphae is a collection of 3d-printed artifacts constructed of rhizome-like networks. Inspired by the vein structures that carry fluids through organisms from the leaves of plants to our own circulatory systems, 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.
