For a bold statement, choose the unique Nervous System "2-layer Center" Stainless Steel Ring. Made from layer upon layer of durable stainless steel, the ring measures 7 millimeters wide and is comfortable and light. The ring features two layers of cell-structure shaping, one inside the other, adding depth to the design. The cut-out motif is printed with a high-tech method of 3-D printing which fuses silver-toned particles to the steel with a laser. With a matte texture and a tapered back, the ring is easy to wear with all your favorite pieces. Pair it with a few silver stacking rings, or wear it alone to show off its one-of-a-kind appeal.
Nervous System is an experimental design studio that uses new technologies to reinterpret natural phenomena.
Instead of designing individual objects, we write computer programs that detail a design process which generates a myriad of designs. Our studio is a place where necklaces aggregate like corals, rings structure themselves like radiolarians, and furniture grows branches and blooms like plants.
New manufacturing techniques like rapid prototyping allow for the creation of a series where each piece is unique and also allow the production of three dimensional forms that would be impossible to make traditionally.
These interdisciplinary experiments borrow from our studies of architecture, biology, math, and computer science to produce works whose beauty and complexity are rooted in a deep understanding of natural systems.
Nervous System is based in Western Massachusetts. It was founded in 2007 by Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg, who met as undergraduates at MIT. Jessica studied biology and architecture while Jesse studied math and computer science.
