Experimental design process — Textures
The art of letting go
Letting the manufacturing method, the FDM 3D printer, together with the material, a PLA and wood fiber based composite, decide the aesthetic outcome. With 3D-models designed with inspiration from nature, flowy shapes and clay.
The Process / Luminaries
The result — Luminaries
The result is decorative luminaries, with textures achieved by levering the imperfections of 3D printing. Oak and linen details gives contrast and complete the outcome.
If we can use 3D printing in combination with biocomposite, with a wareness of the aesthetic expression in the technology, this can make room for more product categories in the future. We can also reduce waste in additive manufacturing, with textures that are less demanding in terms of perfection.
