Inspired by the complex forms of radiolarians, where intricate pattern is integral to structure, these shapes derive from a simulation of spring meshes. We created interactive software to morph, twist, and subdivide each design, transforming a simple mesh to a complex patterned structure. Made to order in your size.

How thin are the walls of this ring? I'm trying to make a stainless steel object with walls as thin as the material permits, and your ring looks thinner than I thought was possible.

3d prints are built up in discrete layers which creates quite a bit of visual texturing that cannot easily be removed when the surfaces on complex and tiny. This gives the piece variable color in most lighting situations. In high light, like in the on hand pictures which was taken outdoors it appears silver. We also offer the same ring on our website in perfectly polished sterling silver.

Very cool! But, if it's Stainless Steel, why does it appear Brown?
