I was contemplating this design for some time before finally progressing it from my imagination to a printable design.
It feels an immense privilege to live in an age where it's possible to design and print interlinked items such as this.
Most chain mail designs have x and y expansion and flex in very predictable ways. By designing 60 degree rotational symmetry into this lattice, this has a more organic feel compared with most manufactured things we handle.
Each element comprises a triple twisted loop meeting in a top and bottom hub and interlocking with neighbour elements.
Dishwasher safe in strong and flexible.
