“Zima” is a series of houseware products designed by Morphocode. The design was inspired by John Conway’s Game of Life, generated using our own plug- in Rabbit and 3D printed in white plastic.

The Design

Each coaster is a cellular automaton produced by a simple algorithm. The generative process is based on a set of simple rules that give birth to an intricate, self-organized pattern.

The Generative Process

The aggregation process starts with a single cell. Soon, the birth of a few neighbors leads to a consistent structural growth, governed by simple rules of interaction.
