Kerridge and Stott create speculative design projects that experiment with new materials.
Working with bioengineer Ian Thompson, Kerridge and Scott created wedding bands coated with bone cells. “The bone tissue was cultured in a laboratory and then seeded onto a bioactive ceramic that acted as a scaffold for the growing cells….The final bone tissue was taken to the designer’s studio and combined with precious metals to finish the ring.”1 The ring functions as both a symbol of commitment and an actual memento of your partner’s corporeality.
