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...
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

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...
