Hyphae is a collection of 3D printed artifacts constructed of rhizome-like networks. Inspired by the vein structures that carry fluids through organisms from the leaves of plants to our own circulatory systems, we created a simulation which uses physical growth principles to build sculptural, organic structures. Starting from an initial seed and a surface, we grow a hierarchical network where nodes constantly branch and merge. The densely interconnected structure is at once airy and strong.
The lamp comes with an eco-friendly 3-watt 200 lumen LED light fixture with three bright Cree LED's that will last for 6 years of continuous use. It is UL-listed and works off a 120V or 240V outlet.
Please contact us at http://n-e-r-v-o-u-s.com/contact.php to receive the lighting components for the lamp. We will send them to you free of charge if you purchase the lamp shade.

Escher’s Playground - Reminiscent of the upside-down staircase paintings by Escher, this 7x7x7 maze will soon have you forgetting which way is up and down. The dimensions of this maze are 40mm by 40mm by 40mm and the ball is 9mm in diameter.
Floating Labyrinth - The ball appears to float through an intricately
connected matrix. What appears to be open paths are mysteriously blocked
in this 6x6x6 maze. The dimensions of this maze are 31mm by 31mm by 31mm
and the ball is 8mm in diameter.
Zig Zag Zog - You will learn to zig zag
in three dimensions to solve this 5x5x5 maze, but watch out for the
pitfalls! The dimensions of this maze are 24mm by 24mm by 24mm and the
ball is 7mm in diameter.
by pushing the ball into the spring loaded entrance ( it looks like a
backwards “J”). Tip the maze in different directions to roll the ball
along the paths through the maze. Don’t worry, if you make a wrong turn,
the ball will not fall out of the maze. If the ball runs into a dead-end
you can just roll the ball back the opposite way and try another path,
that’s all part of this fun brain game. When you reach the exit there is
a spring loaded button to press to release the ball from the maze. The
exit is in a corner of the 3D maze, where you will find a bar with the
little button sticking out from the side of the maze.
Each maze game come with the ball attached by a little chain link cage for shipping. This needs to be cut off and cut open with scissors and the ball will fall out. Note that each larger size maze comes with a larger ball. The balls can quickly and easily be colored with a highlighter or marker. Let the ball dry for a minute after applying then roll between clean white paper to remove excess color so it does not rub off on the maze. Paint for plastic models can also be used. The orange, green and black balls in the pictures were colored with highlighters or markers. Coloring the ball makes it easier to track in the Labyrinth maze.
