Description

The Flora Collar is the centerpiece of the Floraform collection by Nervous System design studio. 'Its complex form emerges as the result of a bespoke algorithm that creates multiple scales of structure, from large undulations down to micro ruffles. The result is a bold yet intricate floral effect, rendered in 3D-printed nylon. Floraform is inspired by the biomechanics of growing leaves and blooming flowers. Each piece emerges from a computational simulation of differential growth, a surface that grows at different rates in different location. The flowering structures expand fastest along their edges, evolving from simple surfaces to flexuous forms that fill space with curves, folds, and ruffles.'
