We are launching Quark Jewelry, by Stijn van der Linden of the art & design studio, Virtox. He’s a leading figure in the 3D printing design community. His work has been featured on the Today Show and the Wired Store. Quark Jewelry is one of the first products made by our platform, Mixee Labs. It is inspired by the intricacies of subatomic particle movement.
Stijn made his first piece of computer art at age 6 with Graphics Basic on Commodore 64. Computer graphics since then, has gone a long way, and he has been keeping up! We interviewed Stijn to give you some insight into the design of Quark Jewelry.
Check out the brilliant detail on that! Great job!
