A pair of round cellular earrings in polished 3D-printed nylon. Two contrasting layers of pattern spiral towards an inner void creating a complex form. 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.
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. Measures 2.2" x 2.2".
