The Reaction Jewelry Collection is the design of the week.


Welcome to this week’s blog post, where we will be highlighting the amazing Reaction Jewelry collection from Nervous System. Nervous System, a generative design studio located in the beautiful Catskills area of New York State, is known for their ability to create stunning and intricate shapes for artwork and jewelry using advanced mathematical algorithms.

With their expertise in 3D printing, Nervous System has been a frontrunner in the industry since its inception in 2007, the same year our publication launched. Over the years, they have graced our Design of the Week segment multiple times, with their 2013 creation, the Cellular Lamp, becoming a staple in our testing of new 3D printers.

Now, Nervous System has unveiled their latest collection of 3D printed metal jewelry, aptly named “Reaction Jewelry”. This collection features a variety of pieces, including rings, earrings, and more, all sharing a common feature: a chemical-like surface pattern. Each item is meticulously embossed with intertwining patterns of ridges and valleys, creating a visually captivating and tactile experience for the wearer.

The design process for the Reaction Jewelry collection involves a computer simulation of reaction-diffusion, a chemical patterning mechanism commonly observed in a range of biological systems. From animal skin patterns to slime molds, this phenomenon serves as the basis for Nervous System’s intricate designs. By incorporating this technique into their jewelry, Nervous System has not only achieved aesthetically pleasing pieces but also enhanced the tactile experience for wearers.

All items in the collection are 3D printed using solid metal, including stainless steel, silver, or brass. While it is unclear where Nervous System produces these stunning pieces, it is likely that they are collaborating with a metal 3D printing facility, as operating their own would be challenging. However, they have mentioned that the Reaction Jewelry collection includes their first products created using Desktop Metal’s stainless steel process, further elevating the quality of their creations.

For those interested in owning a piece from the Reaction Jewelry collection, you’re in luck! Nervous System is offering these unique creations for sale to the public. Prices for the pieces start at a reasonable $40 and increase depending on the design and material. So, whether you’re a fan of rings or earrings, or simply appreciate the artistry behind Nervous System’s jewelry, there’s something for everyone in this collection.

We hope you enjoyed learning about Nervous System’s Reaction Jewelry collection. We are continuously amazed by their ability to merge mathematics, biology, and art to create one-of-a-kind pieces. If you’re as intrigued as we are, be sure to check out their website for more information and to explore their other remarkable creations. Stay tuned for more exciting designs and innovations coming your way.
