(Phys.org) —Emerging Objects, a San Francisco based fabrication studio, is pioneering the use of new kinds of material for use as an "ink" with 3-D printers. To date, their materials are based on wood, salt, paper, cement, nylon and acrylic. Launched and run by architects Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello, the aim of the company is to develop material for the creation of 3-D buildings, building parts, and interior accessories using natural or renewable components.
Designer - Nel Linssen, The Netherlands is an old-timer when it comes to making jewellery as well as objects from paper. For some thirty years she is constantly exploring how a different form or structure can arise out of a new way of constructing, which makes a piece even more appealing when worn and on the go. Years of interplay between head and hand, thinking and doing, has led to perfection and this makes her work extremely sensitive and humane.
