Digitally designed earrings inspired by natural patterns
by Arbalia Studio from UK
The Branching Project is Arbalia Studio’s bold, expressive collection of unique design earrings inspired by the natural patterns of growth of tree branches. The rules that inform the development of living plants are abstracted to design tension curves of intricate geometrical beauty. The collection is fabricated as a unique limited series.
Flora is a model of strong and unique clarity of form that stands out of the ordinary with elegance and character. It is the original design of the branching project. Flora is derived from the pure symmetrical organisation of tree branches and shows the most clear representation of the beauty of this organic process.
The pendant is described by a three pointed profile which develops into a triangular base. The gentle decreasing thickness towards the branches tips marks the lightness of its shape and emphasizes the curves of this unique design. Its organized three-dimensional articulation produces a sculptural form of great depth in lights and shadows and it is characterized by a gradient of subtle reflections which disappears within the inner layers of the branches. The smooth curves of this design interact with face contour and profile lines finding a clear dialogue with the jaw profile and great harmony with the body.
Each model is individually fabricated from high resolution 3D printed wax and cast in brass using traditional lost-wax technique. The surface is finally polished and sanded by hand to achieve a fine grain brushed finish which celebrates the small irregularities and imperfections of the natural world. Quality is of fundamental importance: we always use high quality metals and alloys from a reliable and responsible source. All products go through quality control selection to maintain high design standards.
Own the design and be inspired. Wear them proud, keep them with care
Arbaliastudio is a London-based design workshop that investigates natural patterns and organic processes of formation to identify new aesthetics in contemporary design and to define new challenges within the context of our society.
We are are a team of designers and makers with backgrounds in architecture and engineering and we decided to put together our design thinking, our interest in the dynamics of people interaction and our technical experience in digital manufacturing and complex 3D simulation to start this adventure.
The studio research explores the thin threshold between the digital, physical and natural realm. Software-based parametric design tools for generative form finding are combined with traditional production techniques to investigate the beauty of the natural forms understanding that every design challenge is unique.
