Jessica Rosenkrantz

Nervous System is a design studio founded in 2007 by Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg. They work at the intersection of science, art, and technology, and create using a novel process that employs computer simulation to generate designs and digital fabrication to realize products. Drawing inspiration from natural phenomena, Jesse & Jessica write computer programs mimicking processes and patterns found in nature and use those programs to create unique and affordable art, jewelry, and housewares. Jessica graduated from MIT in 2005 and holds degrees in Architecture and Biology. Afterwards, she spent 2.5 years studying architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
