Personal Product Objects

We think that the future of 3D printing in both the mix of craftsmanship and technology. In this case we have combined the potential of our PowerWasp with the knowledge of concrete based materials to obtain innovative objects. Our first design for a “Personal Product” starts with the shilouette of your face: we want to turn it into an object! So we’re developing a design process that starts from your portrait’s profile (that becomes into a path for create a revolution solid in 3D) and transforms it into a formwork for a lamp, or a vase, or… something else. The production method begins with the 3d printing of the formwork (PLA) that is used for molding the vase with a concrete specifically made for design objects. This molding operation is not a common solution because we’re going to centrifuge the concrete into this formwork! The project is started and we’re at work.

guide mfDesign for Craft
Design for Craft is an open design lab for design, ideas and services about the problem solving for people and enterprises. We have a strong attitude towards sharing knowledge, making and experimenting together new approaches and tecniques. We believe into the Open Sourced Design so we’re searching for people and resources, locals and globals, that can enforce and powering this vision.
