A wide cuff featuring an intricate organic structure.

watch the video to see how it was created!

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.

@jolyon Since you asked, we turned on the ability for both the medium and large-size Rhizome cuffs to be printed in polished brass! You may also want to consider the similar-looking hyphae cuff, which is now available in both silver and brass too (and a bit cheaper). You can find that one here: https://www.shapeways.com/model/212383/hyphae-cuff-sz-m.html?li=aeTabs Thanks!
