Printing Things

Unfolding the Third Dimension
Posted by Angie—06/2014

Let's face it—the golden age of 3D printing has now begun. In all likelihood, this development represents the largest technical upheaval in manufacturing since the invention of the lathe. Sharing a love of technology and experimentation, young designers like Claire Warnier and Dries Verbruggen of Belgian design studio Unfold continue to expand the possibilities of 3D printing and digital production. Recently, the duo transferred their ideas into Printing Things, a new book by Gestalten that presents the newest technologies and outstanding projects, testifying the paradigm-shifting topic of 3D printing.

In this video, Gestalten.tv meet with Warnier and Verbruggen to catch a glimpse into the 3D printing world and its background of what some have hailed as the third industrial revolution.

About Unfold: Shortly after Claire Warnier and Dries Verbruggen left the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2002, they founded Unfold as a platform for their multidisciplinary work at the intersection of design, technology, and art. Unfold is best known for developing a groundbreaking ceramic printer called L'Artisan Électronique.
