What happens when art and technology come together? Beautiful ideas come to life. While 3D Printing has recently made its foray in the world of art, design and fashion, the spotlight has been shining on this newcomer’s potential to create made-to-order designs that everyone is talking about. Take the geometrically-complex Fractal Table and the bust of Lady Bellhaven’s hat at the V & A’s show for the 2011 London Design Festival. MGX, Materialise’s creative division which makes lighting, furniture and art pieces, has also worked extensively with American art giant, Frank Stella to break new ground by bringing this technology to the art world.
“I first learned about Materialise at a tradeshow in Milan when I was introduced to their Additive Manufacturing technologies. Their futuristic ideas and the endless possibilities behind these production processes immediately reminded me of Nervi’s work. At that point it was clear that I had to collaborate with this company in order to represent Nervi’s buildings in the way he would have wanted it.” Elisabetta Margiotta Nervi
Do you want to compromise?
We didn’t think so. You have a picture in mind; we will realize it without any compromises. Due to our Additive Manufacturing technologies, you have unprecedented freedom of design to place things exactly where you want in whichever shape you want. This was not possible working with conventional methods. Now with 3D Printing, your design potential is unlimited and the possibilities are endless. We understand that every project is unique so demands constantly change. Adaptability is at the core of what we do.
With giant 3D Printing, every detail is pronounced
With the high quality of our mammoth machines and huge machines in other technologies, you will achieve better detail than standard processes. Since you have unlimited freedom of design, you can keep maximum detail in all your creations resulting in the perfect representation. Break away from the barriers of design and create impact by encompassing both gigantic sizes and minute details.
