‘Shapes of Sweden' in exhibition Printing the World, Centre Pompidou

The object was also selected for the exhibition ‘Printing the World’ that opened on the 15th of March in the Centre Pompidou.

The exhibition brought digital technology and creation together. In ‘Shapes of Sweden’ the synergy of these two disciplines resulted in an alternative for car seating with non-scarce materials and more environmentally friendly 3D techniques. Works were selected that explore the implications of the fourth industrial revolution. Other participating designers from the Netherlands are: Aldo Bakker, Joris Laarman, Dirk van der Kooij and Olivier van Herpt.
