The Wave Of 3-D Printing Gives Birth To A New Era Of Design
As the future rolls out new techniques for production it paves the way for innovation. Prompting in its wake a progressive design renaissance.
I was reminded of this fairly new technology currently sweeping the design industry by @ellocrafting's re-post yesterday. Today I decided to highlight this burgeoning usage of the fusion of tech and design. To further explore how it relates to the early adopters of fashion that would soon be followed by those who design jewelry.
Pictured below is a shoe design by Pauline Van Dongen developed as part of her 'Morphogenesis' collection. The designer is no newbie to the wearable tech scene. She started out while studying her Masters at ArtEZ, Academy of the Arts in Arnhem, Netherlands, in 2010.
Makerbot who has spearheaded the tech side by developing their own software and hardware has made 3-D printing accessible to all. The Verlan 3-D printed dress below was Makerbot's entry into the Fashion Stakes.
Finally what would fashion be without Couture. Iris Van Herpen has defined her collections with this cutting edge industrial science. The image shown is a close up detail shot of one of her incredibly intricate designs.
