The new line of contemporary 3D printed jewelry will be previewed at the September edition of the Parisian fair Maison and Objet. Designed by Omri Revesz, these beautiful 3D printed pieces are inspired by mathematics, astonishing poetry and the paradoxes and illusions of perception.
Penrose: mathematics, patterns and poetry
Tenacious geometric structures become vibrant patterns, rigid schemes materialise nonchalantly to generate a game of inlaid work that combines artificial with natural, rules with creativity, almost simulating the harmonies hidden behind our everyday lives. Penrose, the new collection of 3D printed jewelry created by the Israeli designer Omri Revesz for Maison 203, recaptures the tiling invented by Roger Penrose and Robert Aman in 1974: a pattern of geometric shapes that combine two rhombus shapes of different sizes to create an endless pattern. A mathematical structure interpreted by the designer to become a platform for an infinite number of design possibilities.
The Penrose collection starts from a rigorous geometric architecture that never repeats itself in an identical manner thanks to the asymmetric pattern. A very natural result is generated that brings together both order and disorder to create accessories that contrast with the body, while merging with it. A collection that speaks the language of the oxymoron and harmony, open to new interpretations, also suggested by the diversity of colours. “Each shade effects the suggestions inspired by the jewelry,” explains the designer. “For example, mustard and darker shades of red recapture the material aspect of the earth and surfaces parched by the sun, brighter colours transform the tiles into flower petals, while black gives the collection an elegant geometric simplicity.”
The extreme versatility of 3D printing – a main feature of the Maison 203 collections – gives this new line of accessories a unique character, based on an overlapping of algorithms and mathematical geometries, rigorous schemes and natural patterns. The Penrose collection – made of sintered nylon – consists of 6 earrings, 2 brooches, 4 rings, 2 necklaces with pendant and 2 chokers, in the colours of black, midnight blue, jungle green, blood red, clay, mustard and double tones – hand painted – mustard/gold, blood red/burgundy, jungle green/olive green. A collection that effortlessly combines mathematics with poetry, Penrose will be previewed in September. Until then you can shop their current 3D printed products at their website.
