The Fish in Lilies and Fish in coral bracelets are part of the Garden of Eden collection. The theme for the fashion pieces was inspired by the Judeo-Christian story of creation. In the collection I reinvent Eve as the master of the Serpent. Free, powerful, sexual and in control, the author of her destiny. And as the collection is customizable both in color pallet and fit, it does not matter what shape or size she is.

The fashion collection is the first multi-material multi-colour 3D printed fashion ensemble in the world. The colored pieces were designed specifically for the Stratasys Objet500 Connex3. I worked closely with Dr. Daniel Dikovsky and Tal Ely of Stratasys Materials R&D ( Israel) for 6 months before the official 3D printer release to design the parts. Uformia ( Norway) collaborated on the customization options.

I started the collection by looking at nature, nature is extremely adept at combing different materials and the “jelly like” beauty of underwater creatures served as inspiration for the bracelets. Of course I also studied the Objet500 Connex3.
