Digital Dimensions

25th November 2013

3D printing continues to evolve into new and exciting areas and is fast becoming more than a gimmick – although its introduction to Asda stores in the UK for shoppers to print miniature versions of themselves might be an exception to that rule!

But designers continue to explore how it will impact and really become the new manufacturing revolution. Barack Obama has been quoted as citing it as being a drive for the US manufacturing future and proposals are a foot to have maker bots in all US schools - and I was delighted when my 9 year old came home from school this week announcing that her school had now got a 3d printer.

Exploring the aesthetics and the generative outcome of pattern in 2 and 3d is Lash-Up – a collaboration between Granato and Enrico Pieraccioli who aim to ‘trigger cooperation between the world of architecture, design and art‘.

Their latest project for TexTeam srl does just that exploring the nature of codifacation through parametic drawings and 3d printing which is then printed onto textiles creating an interplay between dimensions, pattern and illusion.

I use this blog as a notebook of inspirations – I post things I see and like and thoughts of mine. I don't revolve around a singular topic and neither does this blog. Everything and anything is relevant
