Studioba for VDF x Ventura Projects

Studioba's Now vessels spotlight potential of 3D printing

Studioba is introducing its range of 3D-printed vessels, entitled Now, as part of VDF's collaboration with Ventura Projects.

Exhibitor: Studioba
Project title: Now

Studioba is a design studio in Chicago that explores both conventional and experimental methods of production, such as CNC routing and 3D printing.

It is introducing Now, a series of 3D-printed vessels, as part of the VDF x Ventura Project collaboration.

Now comprises a mix of top-heavy vessels that have been made locally using additive manufacturing and "bio-derived materials".

The project responds to the increasing popularity of alternative manufacturing processes that has resulted from an awareness of the "unavoidable wastefulness common to consumption". It seeks to spotlight the potential of 3D-printing in creating more ethical design.
