Nervous System's trademark portfolio of generative cups, lamps and jewlery has 'grown' an unlikely new product: jigsaw puzzles. Expanding the radius of an immaculate practise isn't easy, yet partners Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg have produced a perfect fit: Generative Jigsaw Puzzles – surprisingly colourful thanks to the work of featured artist Jonathan McCabe – trace the same interest in natural patterns, unconventional geometries and computational systems that has inspired many of the duo's fantastic fabrications. And like the other items available in their shop, each puzzle – down to the art and individual pieces – is a one of a kind creation, rendered from custom software and a studio toolchain in Somerville, MA (US).
Kinematics is a system for 3D printing that creates complex, foldable forms composed of articulated modules. The system provides a way to turn any three-dimensional shape into a flexible structure using 3D printing.
