My design philosophy follows that design and manufacturing are inseparable. With the popularity of 3D printers, I can closely tie design and technology together. For example, in the design process, the scaled model data produced by a household-level 3D printer can be directly used in the physical manufacturing of the 3D printing factory to achieve perfect consistency between the design and the physical production.

Today, FDM can be said to be the lowest budget 3D Printing Technology. I used FDM as an entry point to discuss the changed that 3D printing has made to contemporary design and to prove that design and manufacturing are inseparable. For FDM technology, the filling and contour-like layer patterns hidden under the surface are its most representative features, but people regard it as rough defects. In my work “Infill Chari”, I present them positively and transform them into the unique visual language of FDM. 

The three products unveiled on the exhibition are “Crown Chair”, “Infill Chair” and “Fold Chair”.

The three products unveiled on the exhibition are “Crown Chair”, “Infill Chair” and “Fold Chair”.

Crown Chair

The Crown Chair is a work perfectly shows the unique contour pattern of FDM. I incorporated the layer pattern was originally consider a defect into the shape of the product itself. The sharp back line makes the texture of each layer more prominent and produces a unique beauty.

Infill Chair

Infill Chair is to show the internal filling of 3D Printing model. FDM technology will generate a net-like filling structure inside the model during printing. Coupled with the translucent properties of the PLA material, the inner filling can be seen through the outer wall of the finished product. However, this kind of filling is often regarded as a low degree of completion effect, thus I use design means to transform it into its unique visual language, so that it can be naturally integrated into the product.

Fold Chair

Fold Chair is another attempt to extend FGF to FDM technology. FGF has faster printing speed and higher strength, which is very suitable for printing on larger furniture. In order to reflect the efficiency of this printing method, I designed the lines on its side to be freely stacked silk, as if making it is as simple and fast as stacking silk.
