Snowangels | Modern Christmas ornaments inspired by the motion of dance
01. November 2018, Duisburg, Germany
Designer David Münscher has created „SNOWANGELS“, a series of modern Christmas ornaments, that draw inspiration from the fluent motion of classic dance moves and dance photography.
The intricate, weightless shapes of the snowangels were created using an algorithmic design approach, where an object’s motion is frozen into a static sculpture over time. Physical snapshots of the angel`s abstract wings were taken over the course of the motion tracing the movement into one continuous form.
The provided photographs give a good impression of the changing appearance of these sculptures in different perspectives, but the dynamic forms are best understood in motion.

Although originally intended as Christmas ornaments the snowangel`s resulting resemblance of abstract butterflies, will make for an interesting home decoration all year around.
There are two different models in two different sizes available. One set measuring 2 inches (50mm) and the other one 2.5 inches (70mm).
The ornaments are 3d printed on demand in a strong nylon material, that makes them very durable despite their delicate appearance.
