Inside this glass dome are vessels printed from sugar. The dome has an indented opening, inviting museum visitors to take a whiff of the objects inside; and yes, they smelled like Cotton Candy.

These pieces were designed by architects Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello in Oakland, California. The team use 3D printing processes to invent forms with unique tactile qualities.

The two pink candy dishes have rough, grainy surfaces. The first dish resembles a stack of bubbles. At the top, half of one bubble serves as a lid.

The second is a footed, rimmed bowl with a cone-shaped lid, which sits displayed separate from its base.

Eye On Design: 3D Printed Bone Dress By Iris van Herpen

This dress is 3-D printed, and the 3-D file was developed by designer Iris van Herpen along with architect Isaie Bloch. The file-making took two months of intense drawing and a full week of printing in a very sophisticated machine. According to van Herpen, “People often think that when you create something by machine, it is perfect, but this dress is a good example of the opposite. While the dress was printing, many small ‘faults’ happened because of the intense heating of the material. This makes the bones irregular, and makes it look even more real.”

Van Herpen’s lacelike dress, worn as an exoskeleton on the body, is the first 3D-printed garment to enter the Costumes Institute’s collection. The designer blurs traditional distinctions between ready-to-wear and haute couture by fusing the machine made and handmade, they opening up previously unseen possibilities for the future of fashion
