rojkind architects explore a hexagonal dynamic facade with the liverpool department store. using scaled versions of the hexagon, the new department store's facade is composed of three layers in an extended outer skin that acts as a showroom.
In collaboration with NTT Data Engineering Systems and Probox Japan, Japanese Hifi company Final Audio Design (FAD) designed and created the world's first mass-produced 3D-printed titanium earphones called 'Final audio design LAB 01'.
President Obama announces two new public-private manufacturing innovation institutes – one in Chicago and one in the Detroit area -- as well as a competition for the first of four additional manufacturing innovation institutes.
Digital Skin is a research in geometry and 3d printing that involves the development of highly cutomizable, algorithm driven, 3d objects with a function of a smartphone case. We have reverse engineered our smmartphone case and developed a enveloping volume using algorithmic modelling in Grasshopper. Each case uses a different algorithm so that each case is unique. Our research focused on the imperfection of the 3d printing process and exploited the traces of the fabrication process that were embedded in the design.

digital skin / idz arhitectura - A research on bringing uniqueness to products via 3d printing
Instead of creating 3D models in a 3D programme and then simply have them printed out, Lia wanted to know what can be achieved with the actual properties of filament and the movements of the printhead.
