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

Make your Christmas unique!

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.
