Nervous System

  |  

Biography

Nervous System is a generative design studio that works at the intersection of science, art, and technology. Designers Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg create using a novel process that employs computer simulation to generate designs and digital fabrication to realize products. Drawing inspiration from natural phenomena, they write computer programs based on processes and patterns found in nature and use those programs to create unique and affordable art, jewelry, and housewares.
Founded in 2007, Nervous System has pioneered the application of new technologies including 3D printing, webGL, and generative systems. Nervous System releases online design applications that enable customers to co-create products in an effort to make design more accessible. These tools allow for endless design variation and customization.
Jessica graduated from MIT in 2005 and holds degrees in architecture and biology. Afterwards, she studied architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. She is currently a lecturer at MIT in the department of architecture. Jesse also attended MIT, majoring in mathematics.
Nervous System’s designs have been featured in a wide range of publications, including WIRED, the New York Times, and the Guardian. Their work is a part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Cooper–Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
