Shadowbrook

Shadowbrook is part of the first-ever collection of 3D printed metal residential faucets, created via additive manufacturing. A celebration of the natural experience of water, the Shadowbrook presents an unforgettable experience not achievable using traditional manufacturing methods. Water flows from the multi-faceted Shadowbrook faucet spout, recreating the poetic flow of water bouncing on rocks in a riverbed. It enchants the user by reinventing the experience of receiving water from a tap.

Ta'or box

TA'OR BOX opens up completely new design possibilities: the drawer is available in three different types of veneer, in black, grey or white and in three varieties of wood decor and in an infinite variety of dimensions. TA'OR BOX is compatible with Blum’s MOVENTO system: all drawers run smoothly on the runners from the fittings manufacturer and have been tried and tested millions of times. As high quality as the TA'OR BOX looks, processing is actually quite simple: in just 60 seconds, the drawer can be assembled without tools. It gives the craftsman more time for creativity.

Flower Shaper

These serie of vases is the result of experimenting with the capabilities and limitations of clay and a self-built 3D clay-printer. Clay is soft and pliable when wet, but becomes hard and brittle when dry. After heating in a kiln, clay transforms into a durable, waterproof material. The focus is on creating interesting shapes and textures that are either difficult and time consuming to make or even not doable using traditional methods. The material and the method defined the structure, the texture and the form. All working together to help shape the flowers. No other materials were added.

Kintsugi

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.

Cilllia

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.
