It seems like the creature crawled out of the depths of the ocean, thankfully for every bit of rising temperature in its surrounding. Thus, as soon as its tentacles heat up, they seem to move magically, rising and lowering in time with music only the creature can hear.


The mystic creature has been created by Beate Eisman. Thanks to a grant, the jewellry designer tinkered with shape memory alloys, creating this FOENIKUS creature. The apparently maritime being can teach even non-professionals how smart materials work. At a glance, it teaches what shape memory alloys can do and what they can be used for.


Shortly after it's publication, FOENIKUS was so sought after, that more than one creature had to be created, showing the mysterious and marvellous effects of shape memory alloys to an astounded audience.
