Over the past few years the terms 3D printing, rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing have all become a standard part of the design lexicon. A new exhibition at The Aram Gallery looks at the very latest developments in the field and considers ways that the processes will become ever more mainstream in the future. Having started life as a way of producing prototype models for conventional manufacturing, the ability for user input into the final design process means the technology is now becoming accessible to the general public. In addition, the development of the materials used in the processes, ranging from plastics to basic raw materials such as sand, show how the technology is being adapted to suit local economic production conditions.
- The show features work across a range of disciplines including architecture, furniture and jewellery and includes designs by Michael Eden, Markus Kayser, Assa Ashuach and Silvia Weidenbach among others.
