The tea is one of the irreplaceable parts of Turkish culture and it is almost a ritual in our geography. The slim waisted tea glass is an iconic object, which is a classic that comes to the mind first when we say Turkish art. Therefore, the tea set has been our first project in our series of neoclassical works that blend Turkish culture and Modern design. Project Name:Sofia Yeas:04/2016 Production :Milano / ITALY Materials : Ceramics, painted gold, silver ,varie colours Made in Italy / Hand Made
A 3D printed tattoo is a three-dimensional, physical representation of a certain 2D design. The result is a bespoke piece of body decoration which is flexible and can be easily applied to the surface of skin using bio-friendly, silicone based adhesives. The positive relief effect achieved after application communicates essential design information through both visual and tactile stimulation. 3D printing custom body decoration is a less permanent and non-invasive alternative to conventional tattoos, offering a new level of opportunities for self-expression and transformation of the human form.
An object can break itself but doesn't lose its value and its beauty. This is the philosophy of the ancient Japanese technique of Kintsugi, which means “to repair with gold”. What is broken is not a loss but becomes more precious and unique. In the Japanese culture no object must necessarily be perfect: everyone tells its story. Time passes by and from the signs of his passing, it comes a form of beauty even more powerful. Kintsugi tableware is born from this philosophy and makes the gold ornamentation current and geometric, stylish and elegant, for a timeless and luxurious mise en place.
Inspired by the hair structures occur in nature at different scales with multiple functionalities, Cilllia looks at new ways of 3D printing dense hair on flat and curved surfaces. It allows users to design and generate hair geometry at 50 micrometer resolution and assign various functionalities to the hair, such as mechanical adhesion property; new passive actuation and touch sensing on a 3D printed artifact. The project envisions a future where physical materials’ properties and functions, whether eletrical or mechanical can be encoded in the material fabrication process directly by users.
Microscape is a new collection of architecturally-precise models of cities around the world. We’re starting with one of the greatest cities of all: New York. The first phase is a series of 200 “microscapes” (distinct tiles of different parts of the city), which can be assembled into a complete, highly accurate model of Manhattan. Start building New York City with a single microscape that includes your favorite landmark or choose a microscape with more personal significance
It might seem it has a fragile structure but it is mathematically safe. La Smilza can be considered a spacial reticular structure and it responds to the physical principle of levers. It is composed by broomsticks, 3D printed joints and a suspended seat secured with ropes to the frame. The structure reacts to different strengths depending on how the joints are placed. The chair is designed to be unique, personal, built on the owner's needs and anatomic features. It is transportable, its owner can bring it with him wherever he goes and it will adapt to every situation like a Darwinian creature.
