Unspoken words

Saying goodbye to someone precious. The pain The sadness The sudden absence and total void. Unanswered questions and fear of the unknown. "I still have so much to tell you." The focus is on the ‘unspoken words’ in this collection of 3d printed urns, through which those left behind have the chance of giving the deceased a last message. Unsaid. Unexpressed. Words, feelings, promises. Now brought to life in the intimacy of this piece of art. The portrait distinguishes the identity of the receptacle containing the ashes. A lasting and personal manner to remind those who have meant so much to us.

Osteoid

The goal of this project is to improve the overall healing experience for broken or fractured limbs by focusing on the patient’s comfort and healing time. Osteoid cast offers a new way of tackling these problems by introducing new technologies which enables us to make custom fitted, durable 3D printed medical casts that doesn't itch or smell. The end products are slimmer, lighter, doesn't affect from water and environmentally friendly. This cast can also be combined with, a low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) bone stimulator resulting in faster recovery.

Nuova Bari Centrale

For 25 years Bari has been absorbed by a debate on the future of the iron sea which separates its historically defined part and the expansion one. The project is part of a MArch degree thesis from the Polytechnic of Bari, about the 'Grande Bari' plan, involved to solve this issue.

3D Crafts

Alice Le Biez, French young designer has realized a set of three bowls, printed in 3D ceramics. The shape of each bowls reminds traditional ceramics technique. She created with her project an illusion of a hand-made bowl by the design but also by the making process. Her 3D printing object explores the link between traditional skills and new technologies and demonstrates that designer can use the new technologies as a tool to go further in their work and discover a new field of creation.

Pebble Bagasse

The Pebble Collection is inspired by the organic shape of the humble pebble. These elegant plates and bowls are made from bagasse. Bagasse is a robust natural by-product of sugarcane, which is renewable and compostable. It requires fewer chemicals for processing and uses less energy to process. Once composted, it returns to soil in just 8 weeks. What better raw material to use for a single use/disposable plate and bowl.

Cellular Table

Cellular Table has been commissioned to explore new ways of producing metal in the field of furniture design. The project uses a double-layer algorithmic pattern to provide both strength and flexibility. The final form of the table is developed through multiple iterations of the algorithm to provide an optimum level of porosity and lightness. Finally, the manufacturing process offers the use of both 3d printing and electro-forming process to increase both lightweight and sculptural qualities of a typical metal furniture within in a given interior environment.
