Sleek 3D Printed Chairs From Zaha Hadid Architects to be Exhibited at Milan Design Week

At this year’s Milan design week, a new Spanish brand called Nagami will make its debut with four 3D printed chairs designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, Ross Lovegrove and Daniel Widrig. The collection is named Brave New World. 

Each year, thousands of people flock to Italy’s capital of fashion and design for Milan Design Week. The week-long celebration of innovative design is starting up again on April 17, and the new Spanish furniture brand Nagami has a collection that will put visitors on the edge of their seats.

Nagami’s first-ever collection, which will be on display at Milan Design Week, is a set of 3D printed chairs designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, Ross Lovegrove, and Daniel Widrig. The collection is called Brave New World, which is inspired by Aldous Huxley’s classic dystopian novel of the same title.

The prestigious firm Zaha Hadid Architects designed two chairs for the collection; the Bow and the Rise. These sleek and modern furnishings are inspired by marine biology.

Ross Lovegrove designed a stool called Robotica TM, which focuses on similarities that exist between botany and robotics.

The last piece was designed by Daniel Widrig, who used three pieces of PLA to create his “skin-like” Peeler chair. His vision for this seat was to make the seven millimeter thick PLA pieces appear as if they are “peeling off of an invisible joint body.”

“We design products that until now were just waiting for the right technology to come to life: not only objects that you can hold, but also that you can feel and experience as part of your environment,” announced Nagami founders Manuel Jimenez García, Miki Jimenez García, and Ignacio Viguera Ochoa.

Although the entire collection is made with 3D printing technology, the four different chairs are all made using different materials and techniques.

For example, the Bow and Rise chairs include bright colors because the designer was influenced by underwater ecosystems. The two aquatically-inspired chairs are produced with PLA, but instead of 3D printing with filament, the team opted to use a pellet extruder and raw plastic particles.

For the Robotica TM stool, Ross Lovegrove draws comparisons between 3D printing and “natural programming” found throughout nature. To create the stool, he used a continuous rotational process, which fuses together each layer in the midst of the printing process. The stool includes heat-proof silicone inserts, making it ideal for use as a table.

The most simplistic of the four chair designs is Widrig’s Peeler chair. It takes just a few hours to achieve the desired effect of three peeling pieces of PLA. In fact, the designer intended for the chair to be produced in a short amount of time with as little material as possible.

“The chair has been designed to satisfy both the ergonomic constraints of the human body, as well as the ergonomics of the robotic arm that prints it,” said Widrig.

Want to check out the work for yourself? Visit Milan’s Brera Design District where Nagami will be exhibiting the chairs at their pop-up showroom. Or, if you can’t make it out to the Lombardy region for the event, check out the furniture company’s website to learn more about the Brave New World collection.

New Zealand research project explores new design directions for future 3D printed prosthetics

Jan 19, 2018 | By David

As the technology progresses, 3D printed prosthetics are becoming more and more advanced and tailored to the needs of specific types of injuries and lifestyles. A team of researchers based in New Zealand have recently launched a major new project to explore some of the future design possibilities for 3D printing in prosthetics, both in the short term and the long term. Led by the New Zealand Artificial Limb Service, in collaboration with the University of Wellington, the research project also explored the potential for these new developments to be implemented into commercial manufacturing.

The project was roughly organized into four parts, each covering a different design direction that prosthetics could head in with the help of 3D printing. In the short term period, the team focused on new functional fairings and new socket designs, possible in the next 12-18 months. As for a longer period, within the next 7-10 years, multi-density foot printing and information-driven model generation were looked at as possibilities.

The functional fairings concept is geared towards finding new practical applications and uses for prosthetics beyond being just replacements for missing limbs. This could improve the lives of many amputees by transforming what is perceived as a loss into the potential for something more, opening up a space with increased creativity and practicality that only these prosthetic users could access. The team suggested a sport fairing, giving the example of a special prosthetic golf leg. This would have a special golf design as well as an area for spare balls and tees to be stored. There could also be special children’s fairings, with creative designs that appeal to their sense of fun and imagination.

As for the new socket designs, these would be adjustable according to size fluctuations at different times, hopefully making it no harder for a user to put on their prosthetic than for someone to put on a shoe. The team reached out to the Auckland Bioengineering Institute to better understand what might soon be possible for this kind of personalization, with the help of 3D printing technology. Soft tissue scanning can generate an accurate volumetric mesh of a patient’s limb, which allows technicians to visualise what areas of the stump are tolerant or sensitive, or what is hard and what is soft. This means that they would have a better representation of how the socket design should be sculpted. Experiments were carried out with ABS as well as the more advanced TPU material, with the latter being more promising in terms of material properties but coming with an inconveniently long post-processing time.

For the long term, ways to more cheaply produce multi-density foot prosthetics, which are currently prohibitively expensive, were explored. One of 3D printing’s advantages is the way that fill densities can be varied to match desired object performance. This is useful for making prosthetics that are simultaneously stronger and more flexible. To explain this, the team quotes a MIT student talking about the properties of natural structures: “Nature always uses graded materials. Bone, for example, consists of a hard, dense outer shell, and an interior of spongy material. It gives you a high strength-to-weight ratio.’’

There are a number of multi-density 3D printing systems used in other sectors, and the NZALS’ future approaches could take inspiration from these, such as Nervous Systems 3D printed midsole technology for New Balance, or Materialise’s similar system, which is used by Adidas. 3D printed TPU would be the way to go for multi-density prosthetics, and hopefully the technology will advance to make it easier to print with this material in future.

The future of information-driven model generation for prosthetics should see the implementation of the aforementioned soft tissue scanning, as well as what is known as Computational Anatomical Movement. This makes use of scanning, tracking and video analysis so that researchers can examine the force of each muscle, as well as the gait that a particular patient is taking and various other human body movement factors, in order to create a more personalized prosthetic with improved comfort and performance.

The researchers tested out the Stratasys Fortus as well as the UpBox FDM machines, finding pros and cons with each. They concluded that the best solution would be to use an online 3D printing service, which could provide more efficient printing with its specialized expertise and access to a variety of technologies. Shapeways, I.Materialise, and Objective 3D were also suggested as options.

According to NZALS chief executive Sean Gray, New Zealanders are great guinea pigs for developments in prosthesis technology, because they tend to test their limbs to the limits.”People have broken them because they have had them in a ski boot.”, he says. The work carried out by NZALS in collaboration with the University of Wellington and other institutions shows serious promise, and should soon lead to significant improvements in quality of life for amputees there and further afield.

3D-printed satellite imager design

Description

Weirdly organic in appearance, this prototype is the first outcome of an ESA project to develop, manufacture and demonstrate an optical instrument for space with 3D printing.

A two-mirror telescope derived from the European-made Ozone Monitoring Instrument now flying on NASA’s Aura satellite, it was not so much designed as grown, with the instrument’s design requirements put through ‘topology optimisation’ software to come up with the best possible shape.

This prototype was developed for ESA by a consortium led by OHB System in Germany, with TNO in the Netherlands – original designer of Aura’s version – Fraunhofer IFAM, IABG and Materialise in Germany and SRON, the Netherlands Institute for Space Research.

This first ‘breadboard’ prototype has been printed in liquid photopolymer plastic, then spray-painted. The final version would be printed in metal instead. The project is intended to culminate in testing a working instrument in a simulated space environment.

The project is being backed through ESA’s General Support Technology Programme, to hone promising technologies to be ready for space and global markets.
