Biomimicry Chair - Lilian van Daal
This conceptual chair - designed by design graduate Lilian van Daal - is influenced by plant cells; constructed from a single 3D-printed material. It is seen as an alternative to traditional furniture wherein many materials are used and glued together. The structure is designed to function in the place of sturdy support materials where needed, while thinning elsewhere to function much in the way foam might in cushioned pads. The result is a seat that is comfortable, less wasteful to produce and far easier to recycle.

We The Builders
Collaborative sculpture project where a 3D model is divided for various makers to construct their piece, then reassembled. Above is a completed bust of George Washington, and is currently working on one of Benjamin Franklin:
We the People of the Maker-verse, in Order to form more perfect large-scale 3D printed sculptures, hereby establish this crowdsourcing website for the United Printers of the Maker-verse.
Ceramic 3D Printer
Artist Jonathan Keep has put together a 3D printer to produce digital objects out of clay, and has put together a document to build one:
Based on the delta type of 3D printer my aim has been to use parts that can either be made with basic DIY tools and skills, or ordered off the internet. The design is specifically for printing in clay but could be adapted to work with other materials. Many other self build 3D printers use parts printed in plastic but with this project I did not want to be reliant on already having access to a 3D printer.
Looking at Jonathan’s website (in particular the ‘Digital Pots' section), you will see various series based on various ideas. There is the Random Growth of generative forms, Sound Surface based on musical audio data, and other computational methods.

A Nostalgic Ride Through Russia with @dobryvolshebnik
To see more photos from Georgy’s journeys in his orange car, follow @dobryvolshebnik
"People on the road always spot this orange classic car. They remember their Soviet past—some of them had this model 20 or 30 years ago," says Russian Instagrammer Georgy Chernyshev (@dobryvolshebnik), who uses the retro vehicle to travel with his girlfriend across Russia and Ukraine. The car is a 1975 Muscovite (Russian “Moskvitch”—”Mосквич”), and Georgy says its distinctiveness helps him meet interesting people in his journeys. He also feels inspired to travel more. “You can feel a special nostalgia traveling in this car which you wouldn’t get in a modern car,” he says. “I feel its soul, character and history.”
