The transition from geometric solid to a wireframe model is a very simple and easy process through digital parametric means. Voronoi, surface subdivisions, patterning and surface thickening are common place scripts and make for quick thoughtless designs. This creates a very stylised and common place aesthetic (often synonymous with parametric as a term), the challenge then becomes to create something designed which utilises the iterative design potential of computers and parametric approaches.
For this pendant a typology was created and then iterated against both the number of edges and surface subdivisions - producing 24 diamond pendants in this scenario. From there 2 were handpicked for their design and aesthetic appeal, taking into consideration the limitations of 3D printing.
The result is the Diamond Pendant mk1, mk1.2 and mk2. The designed typology here sought a clean and minimalist design with a vertical hierarchy to draw the viewers eyes up from the pendant to the wearers face.
