Design for download
During the Salone del Mobile in Milan in 2011, Droog will present furniture and accessories designed for download by EventArchitectuur and Minale-Maeda, including CNC cut tables, cupboards, desks, side tables, shelves, couches and 3D printed electrical outlets, flowers and charms.
Because machines like 3D printers are appearing in more and more places, being able to download a design for a piece of furniture or accessory is not as futuristic as it may sound. Droog is launching a platform that will allow consumers to download and fabricate designs they download, while also opening up the discussion about design, downloading, open source and digital fabrication. More information at Droog's site.
At the AR Lab, we also have a 3D printer at our service, because combining digital fabrication and augmented reality opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
The KABK also presents at the Salone del Mobile, visit the site for more info.
