Morphē is a unique brand of groundbreaking 3D printed jewelry designed by architect Dimitra Tampaki. The brand combines digital design with advanced 3D printing technology in order to create dynamic statement pieces. Organic forms are translated into body sculptures and wearable art embracing smoothly the body. They follow the curves and the bones of the human body and are merged to that. This work is about beauty, elegance and exploring digital art forms on the body.
Morphē comes from the Ancient Greek word “μορφῆ” which refers to the shape and form of an entity.
Shell collection is inspired by the morphology of sea creatures. Every piece reveals its exoskeleton while showing its strength and its inherent waving. Balancing between organic forms and geometric shapes the collection gives a dynamic statement.
Bone collection gets its inspiration from the bone structure of the human body. It mimics certain bones with an amount of exaggeration while creating a more enhanced version of specific parts of the female figure.
Soul collection is inspired by the natural metamorphosis of a butterfly and its movement. Each piece reveals a different stage of the transformation while forming a shape that smoothly touches the curves of the body.
Architect and Head Designer of Morphē, Dimitra Tampaki graduated from the Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA) in London where she received her MArch in Architecture and Urbanism from Design Research Laboratory – DRL (2014). Since then, she is in a constant research of form finding methodologies, exploring the latest computational design methods and digital fabrication techniques in order to incorporate it into her jewelry line. In 2015 she established MORPHĒ LONDON where all the pieces are treated as body sculptures and wearable art.
