This week five years ago Dezeen was at the opening of the Royal College of Art's 2007 summer show, where graduate designers were exhibiting jewellery made from sugar crystals and pencils, a chandelier-making machine and digitally recreated snowflakes.

David Sutton's 3d-printed bowls modelled the forms of lighting and coral, as well as snowflakes, while Greetje van Helmond's sugary jewellery (above) was grown onto pieces of cord.
