What it means to be ... / 3D printed bracelets

What it means to be ...
What it means to be ...

Bracelets made of ABS plastic using 3D printing technology FDM.

The bracelets have been created through additive manufacturing using a conventional desktop 3D printer. These printers with the lowest level of quality serve to manufacture concept models which however do not achieve an absolute degree of precision.
Each bracelet is a hollow mount of four component parts. The materiality here converts itself into a new aesthetics. The particular haptic and optical surface structure that cannot be attained by any other mechanical or artisanal technique lends a sculptural effect to the bracelets that resonates with their wearable lightness.
