Phenotype 002 (Bracelet) by Maciej Nisztuk
2017 - 2018, Platinum A' Generative, Algorithmic and Parametric Design Award Winner
By combining generative design, digital fabrication and crafts, I create jewelry inspired by biological structures and physical processes occurring in the micro and macro scale. By observing perfect simplicity of nature I emulate its unique forms.
The form of Phenotype 002 bracelet is the result of a digital simulation of biological growth. Using specialized algorithms a shape of bracelets is created. Then the prototype is materialized through 3D printing. The final object is created using traditional craft techniques: jewelry is handcast, polished and finished.
Design Challenges
The main challenge - development of process from "digital" to "material" was established. Starting from the digital recreation of the bone tissue growth process to hand polishing was a long way but finally achieved.
Production Technology
First the digital model is created using the algorithmic representation of bone tissue growth, then the form is 3d printed using SLA technology and castable wax. Subsequent step is the casting process concluded with the hand cleaning, polishing and finishing.
