SeatConcept - 3D Printing

How will 3D Printing shape the future of design? - Alongside this question the idea of a fully printed vehicle seat was born. With new possibilities and ways to create, 3D Printing offers unlimited design options paired with almost unlimited manufacturing options. Undercuts are a thing of the past. Functionalities of many parts can be combined and manufactured from only one single part. The design of my "3D Printing Vision" is a glimpse into the future of Automotive Interior Design. To bring the seat concept to life I teamed up with Materialise and Ideenion Automobil, two companies specialised in 3D Printing and Automotive Engineering.
