10 Friday Facts: 3D Printing
Following the success with the new Rio tables, designed by studio INTEGRATE and Morgan Studio, they have sent us some facinating facts on 3D Printing to fill your friday.
Morgan use 3D printing to create sculptural products with a jewel like aesthetic. The new side and coffee tables feature a glass top that floats over an intricate 3D printed ‘lacework’ basket and solid timber legs. The ideal partner to the Rio 3D printed chairs, the new tables offer a combination of practicality, ground-breaking aesthetics and innovative techniques, with a rational structure and form. They are a unique application of 3D printing in commercial furniture, developed by architect and new technologies designer Mehran Gharleghi in collaboration with Morgan.
“We aimed to create designs that explore new possibilities and combine it with exquisite craftsmanship. Their dynamic forms capture your mind and their handcrafted wooden elements feel familiar to your eyes and touch. We used design innovation to make similar looking objects with same materials behave differently for the right reasons. They become flexible as a comfortable chair and rigid as a strong table, while maintaining coherent aesthetics of ONE collection.”
Says Mehran Gharleghi, Co-Founder of Studio Integrate.
