Nervous System: Hyphae

The structures of Nervous System’s  Hyphae series intricately resemble patterning inspired by science and nature. In a visual sense, we draw connections to underwater coral or decaying leaves. These referred objects’ systems follow the same principles that sustain all life: networks and pathways that distribute energy, as explained by the designers below. With the idea of transporting energy in mind, it is all too appropriate that these designs yield light.

From Nervous System: Hyphae is a collection of 3D printed artifacts constructed of rhizome-like networks. Inspired by the vein structures that carry fluids through organisms from the leaves of plants to our own circulatory systems, we created a simulation which uses physical growth principles to build sculptural, organic structures. Starting from an initial seed and a surface, we grow a hierarchical network where nodes constantly branch and merge. The densely interconnected structure is at once airy and strong. Each lamp is a completely one-of-a-kind design 3D-printed in nylon plastic. The lamps are lit by eco-friendly LED’s and cast dramatic branching shadows on the wall and ceiling.
