Alessi Colab Competition (@ Philadelphia Museum of Art)
Each piece within this collection is meant to be custom ordered and individually produced as 3D printed objects. Employing selective laser sintered [SLS] 3D printing of glass filled nylon will allow for flexibility while at the same time providing rigidity. The production of these rather complicated forms within a monochromatic palette further re-enforces their aesthetically stimulating attributes without creating visual chaos.
This collection of table top objects is meant to articulate a sculptural translation of traditional utilitarian vessels. Applying the graceful and gestural attributes of tree limbs within the context of CAD/CAM modeled forms allows for the activation of a provocative juxtaposition between inspiration founded in nature and the application of a technologically based mode of execution.
