Nervous System's Computer-Simulated Wonders

No one wants cookie-cutter décor or jewelry. But only Mother Nature makes true one-of-a-kind designs. Until Massachusetts firm Nervous System cracked nature's code. The firm's nature-inspired lamps, jewelry, and trivets designed for Modern Twist, can be found at many shops throughout the Northwest.

Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg, both Massachusetts Institute of Technology grads, are attracted to "complex and unconventional geometries," such as a leaf's veining and coral aggregation. The pair uses algorithms to simulate nature's processes, creating truly one-of-a-kind lamps and jewelry designs.

Hyphae Lamp, $600

Algae pendant, $45

Perfect gifts for the person who has it all? We think so.
