MY CHRISTMAS
COLLECTION
3D PRINTED AND LASER-CUT DESIGNS / OPEN CALL

This was our Christmas decoration competition!

We think Christmas decorations should be as personal as the clothes we wear or the furniture we have at home. Thanks to digital fabrication technologies, there are literally thousands of ways to create unique and personalizable decorations. We've invited designers from all over the world to submit their designs for 3D printed or laser-cutted Christmas decorations. Download the detailed briefing.

The competition has ended and was a success with almost 200 submissions. We want to thank all designers for taking part and again congratulate the winners!

Personalization in the age of digital fabrication

Everyone wants to be unique. The way we purchase goods and services is becoming more and more personalized. The history of western design is a largely uninterrupted narrative about efforts to differentiate between groups through aesthetics. The ability of 3D printing and laser cutting technologies to create customized one-off designs helps to tailor designs to individual characteristics and preferences.

One of the most significant advantages of digital fabrication methods is the ability to manufacture complex geometries with little to no extra cost. It is often used to create products that are impossible to produce using traditional processes. Designers are exploiting this geometric flexibility by enabling greater levels of product differentiation. In the end, no product ever needs to be the same again.
