Helix Ring - Black
We adore the sculptural aesthetic of Assa's Helix range. Read about how we discovered Assa here.
A tactile and flexible spiral ring that fits all hand sizes. It is soft to the skin and very comfortable to wear. Its colorful and amorphous lines were carefully designed to create structural strength while keeping the essential sculptural elements. The result is a thin and light structure, different from each angle you look at it.
The Design Process
This object’s linear pattern was designed with a mix of hand sketching and unique 3D scripting tools, giving us full control over this complex and flexible shape. They can zoom in and work from very close to the object surface to achieve the perfect balance between flexibility, durability and aesthetics.
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a 3D Printing technique that uses the heat of a high power laser to bind particles of powdered material together for the creation of a solid structure.
Nylon Polyamide 12 is a high performance polymer. It has outstanding physical properties and it is mainly used in automotive, aeronautic, sport, and textile applications. It was optimized to be used for laser sintering material. The helix elastic behaviour comes form the PA12 material natural flexibility and mechanical properties.
