Dutch designer Iris van Herpen’s stunning collection ‘Voltage’ for Spring/Summer 2013, was inspired by ‘Imaginary Beings: Mythologies of the Not Yet’ at the Centre Pompidou, Paris last spring. This collection of 3D printing by Dr. Neri Oxman,( a professor, architect, designer and artist) motivated her to collaborate with Oxman, Austrian architect Julia Koerner and 3D specialist Stratasys to produce pieces for her architectural collection. Patternbank loves the futuristic, otherworldly quality created by this truly mind-blowing technology.
