R’HONEST | grip mug

As applied research in the field of 3D printing at home I’ve been looking for objects that could benefit from hyper-customization. I realized few things in a household are only used by one single person, but someone’s favorite coffee mug is often one of them – so I made one that only fits my own hand. To capture my grip I covered a cilinder with clay, squeezed it and then 3D scanned the result with my Structure Sensor. Not many 3D printed materials are food safe, but I came across a company (Kwambio) that has developed a specialized 3D printer using ceramics powder to build up their models, then glaze them through a more traditional process – and they produced the first prototype for me.  ...

R’HONEST | KR=Clock

I created a clock for my girlfriend, centered around the place we met. And to make sure she wouldn’t forget our next anniversary I accentuated the numbers of the date we met as well 1-7-’11. If you want to make your own: 3D map made through https://touch-mapper.org/en/ Clock mechanism ordered through https://www.myxlshop.nl/j-s-quartz-uurwerk.html?sqr=uurwerk&, I’m sure there’s plenty varieties available...
3D GRAPH | 40 years at Ouweland

3D GRAPH | 40 years at Ouweland

When my father celebrated his 40th year at Ouweland Expeditie BV I modeled their location from photo references and turned it into my first attempt at a 3D graph. The model features 20 trucks and 23 employees, meant to convey the scale of their operation. As a salute to his jubilee the employees are arranged to form the shape of “40”. It was printed on my own Blueprinter M2....
MEMORY COINS | rich in experience

MEMORY COINS | rich in experience

This project aims to capture a memory (in this case of our yearly holidays) in 3D printed steel coins. If we keep this up we can piggy bank our most precious memories, creating a type of empirical currency.   The forth coin is a playful variation on the principle. It features my face on one side, and my girlfriend’s on the other – so we can let faith decide who has to do the dishes....
TAKE A SEAT | Collaboration-S

TAKE A SEAT | Collaboration-S

This contest challenged us with the question: How can you combine the soft sector of care with the hard material steel in a meaningful way.? We chose a very specific target group: people in a wheelchair, and decided not to focus on their limitation – but rather on the advantage their limitation, and how to share that advantage. We created a foldable chair which can be employed by the wheelchair users themselves to invite people to sit with them when the occasion calls for it. The movement performed to fold out the chair is inviting in itself, and the variable angle in which it can be applied combined with its close proximity to the permanent seat create a personal and informal interaction platform. Inviting someone to the same level can completely change the dynamics of a conversation, making our wheelchair-chair a welcome addition to the care sector of...
FINAL EMBRACE | personalized urn

FINAL EMBRACE | personalized urn

FINAL EMBRACE A personal project that applies 3D printing technology to bring about a transformation of a standard urn into a unique and personal object. For this design the hands were scanned in from each member of the family left behind; her husband, sons, daughters in law and grand child. Together they shape a ‘final...
FLOATABLE | future furniture

FLOATABLE | future furniture

An collaborative exploration with interior architect Karin Valckx about the dinner table of the future. Our Floatable hovers above the table center axe, floating towards anyone who takes a seat. When people touch the Floatable it will light up brighter, yet when its ignored it will look for interaction elsewhere. Its character decides whether it floats off to new people joining the table or whether its loyal to its original company – its appearance can be personalized through 3D printing technology....
MARTIN CUPPEN | 3D printed watermarks

MARTIN CUPPEN | 3D printed watermarks

This project explored the question whether the old craft of paper-making can be enhanced through the contemporary technology of 3D printing. Replacing the labor-intensive soldering of line drawings that produce watermarks by printed lines (created straight from digital images) reduces production time by more...
R’HONEST | Balos Beach

R’HONEST | Balos Beach

I repaired my girlfriend’s (inherited) sugar cup with a story The lid of the cup was missing, and I decided to replace it with a function substitute in the shape of a memory: our first vacation together, a journey to Crete – the Greek island. When I thought back of that holiday the first thing that came to mind was a trip we made on our second day there, when our hotel owners suggested we’d visit Balos Beach, a peninsula in the very west of the island. The road would get bad after a certain point they said, but it would be worth it – so we went for it. And surely, after a while the road got bad. I mean I didn’t get worse, it simply ended. This meant driving off road next to a cliff – in our tiny little rental car – for miles on end. And when we finally arrived at the edge of the mountain it turned out we still had a pretty intense hike in front of us to get down to the water. But when we finally ended up at the beach we had to admit the locals were right, it had all been worth it; Balos Beach was a beautiful lagune, with golden sands, clear water, an amazing view and almost no one else around. Our own private paradise. I looked up the mountain we drove up on Google, traced the side view and extruded it. Then I looked up a picture of the tiny car we were in and did the same, just on a different scale. Next I simply...
