From sneakers to artificial organs it seems that 3-D printing is everywhere these days and the options are endless. That’s why when three New York-based designers team up to reimagine objects with 3-D printing, you know it’s going to be pretty darn impressive.
Joe Doucet, Dean DiSimone and Evan Clabots of OTHR have taken the mechanism of 3-D printing and turned into a tool for magnificent design, creating the “first everyday artifacts of the third industrial revolution”.
Totally minimalist and functional, the objects are made of materials like porcelain, steel and precious metals to form beautiful, intricate and simplistic shapes you’ll never believe have been printed.
“In the future as a designer, you’re either going to be a maker, which I have the utmost respect for and we have several working with us on OTHR, or you’re going to be a creator of intellectual property. And the small-level manufacturer is going to be eviscerated. It’s either going to be craftsmen, or robots. And since I’m not a craftsmen, I opted to pioneer the robots,” said Doucet in a recent Design Milk podcast.
