I asked Open3DLP project developer and “3D Printer Whisperer” Anderson Ta to recommend a 3D designer that has had a profound effect on him and he suggested the Tel Aviv-based Asher Nahmias who goes by “Dizingof”:
As I am someone interested in machine design and processes, designers like Dizingof help push the envelope of my research into new machines and design considerations. The forms he generates also are prime examples of the benefits of 3D printing: there is no other method for making some of his pieces.
I have a heavy math background, so it is an added bonus for me the ways in which his work incorporates math. It’s refreshing to see various formulas and equations come out of a text book and into some of the wildest forms. (The same could also be said for Nervous System…)
Dizingof’s creations are typically complex, flowing and invariably beautiful. Browsing through his extensive portfolio of dozens of designs, you’ll see vases, jewelry, bowls, lamp shades and a few trays and holders, but mostly it’s just art, amazing mathematical art. On his Thingiverse page he [said]: “My aim is to raise the bar of the free 3D content for your personal/work 3D Printer.”

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
