Iris van Herpen
Exhibition at the Design Museum Holon

From now until March 7th, 2015, you can see New Couture by Iris van Herpen, from the Groninger Museum Collection, at the Design Museum Holon in Israel. A guest-member of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, Iris van Herpen is positioned as one of the fashion world’s most creative young designers, seamlessly combining traditional craftsmanship with innovative techniques including 3D Printing. The results are sophisticated, sculptured garments, and she has worked with Materialise to 3D print 11 designs to date, including those featured in her “Biopiracy”, “Hybrid Holism”, “Voltage”, and “Escapism” collections.

“Big Growth” Brought to You by 3D Printing

“Big Growth” Brought to You by 3D Printing

Designed by Mathias Bengtsson, the “Big Growth” table was made with 3D printing technology at Materialise and made its first appearance at Design Miami 2014 for the Galerie Maria Wettergren. This table is an exemplary piece of the blurring line between the natural and the artificial as it was designed by growing a “digital seed” in a virtual world. Standing at 4.2 meters long in solid bronze, the table was designed through a biomimicry process, in which the digital seed emulates natural growth by imitating some of nature’s rules and methods. The furniture parameters have been embedded in the digital seed; however, the form is not defined ahead of time but instead emerges as a result of the growth process.
