“The Constructed Surface Table is composed entirely of plywood residual material from the furniture industry. The material is bought at the same price as a new sheet of plywood, provided the factory saws in the right format. This creates a new homogeneous resource. By bringing the material together in a fishbone pattern, there is no limit in the size or thickness of the table, and even the smallest residual piece can be used. In this way I can make a new surface which is stronger than the original material.”

BUTTERFLY is a simple, yet ingenious coat rack design for Officinanove by Brian Sironi. Using a metal track and wooden hooks, the butterfly ply is slotted into the track without external hardware. This modular design took two processes to create. Looking at our shop, the metal bender and bandsaw would be the main touchpoints for the design.
Hello, Gutenburg! // Stampomatica
Gizmodo’s commentary on the object – “The letterpress was a huge leap forward for mass communication when Johannes Gutenberg perfected the moveable type machine way back in the 1450s. These days, it’s considered a specialty craft. But this tiny letterpress is thoroughly modern: It’s assembled with parts printed on a standard 3D printer. Whoa.”
The size of this letterpress would definitely fit into the framework of the 3D printer we have in the Shop. Fab!
