Reason to Geek Out

2016 Winner: Nervous System

Even next to designs from legends like Alexander McQueen and Issey Miyake, Nervous System’s Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg made an impression with their commission for the MFA’s spring #techstyle exhibit. Featuring more than 1,600 3-D-printed pieces, the MIT-trained duo’s Kinematic Petals dress showcases the customizable creations made possible by their Somerville design studio’s software and simulation tools.
