Etsy Wednesday – science-inspired design

by Eva Amsen

Shelley submitted this week’s Etsy Wednesday. It’s not tagged as science, but it’s science-inspired design. On top of that, the shop is called nervous system.

“Silicone rubber is cut into an organic network of distorting ellipses. The pattern displays shifts in direction and scale, creating a sense of movement and tension around the wrist. These complex forms recall those of radiolarians, plant cells and even the familiar honey comb.”

If you like this kind of science-inspired design, may I also recommend the current issue of SEED magazine? (SEED was kind enough to donate several copies of this issue for SciBarCamp, and we found out that while it makes for light reading, it’s a pretty heavy magazine when you have to carry it around in boxes of forty.)
