This article by Marc Kristal from Metropolis Magazine, originally titled “Digital Details,” looks at the work of NRI, a New York company that is leading the way when it comes to 3D Printing (or rather, additive manufacturing) – finding that there is a craft in these machine-produced models after all. First things ﬁrst: The term “3-D printing” is a misnomer according to Arthur Young-Spivey, the digital fabrication specialist at NRI—a 116-year-old, New York–headquartered supplier of reprographic services to architects and their tradespeople. “The correct term is ‘additive manufacturing,’” he explains. “People call it 3-D printing because it enables you to wrap your head around it, but in some ways it’s confusing.” Young-Spivey has a point, as the process by which a digital ﬁle is converted into an object isn’t “printing” in the commonly understood sense of applying pigment on a substrate.

The Cool Hunter - Architecture Imagine the renovation dilemmas. A huge penthouse of a converted 1930s office building in TriBeCa, New York, is to be turned into a functioning home for a family with three teenagers. In fact, we can not quite imagine the issues that faced Steven Harris Architects when the family showed up, literally, at the doorstep of the celebrated architect and asked if he’d like to work on their home.

The Blossom Light The Blossom Light by designer Ewa Sendecka features four modular LED components that can be bent and molded thanks to the flexible construction of the tubing that encases the power cable (the same used in gooseneck microphone holders). For further modification the components can be used in any order or number and plugged in for power on either the first or last module. Lay it down, stand it up, or hang it from the ceiling- a great modular lighting system that only requires a little imagination. Designer: Ewa Sendecka Blossom Light by Ewa Sendecka

Made of Corian, the result are lamps that challenge all preconceptions about what is possible to achieve with the material.
Before I Die What is important to you 2011 After Candy Chang lost someone she loved, she went through a long period of grief and depression. With time she felt gratitude for the time they had together and eventually she found clarity in her life by contemplating death so much. But she struggled to maintain this perspective. It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day and forget what really matters to you.

Better Than Fireflies in a Bottle I remember camping trips where we would carry an extra jar, just to catch fireflies and make glow-in-the-dark lamps. The Bottle Lantern looks something like that. It’s a standard wide-mouth water bottle with four bright LEDs in the lid that are powered by placing your finger in the carrying hook and turning. Thirty seconds of spinning equates to about four minutes of light. Bottle Lantern – Lamp for Campers by Alexandra Hart & Trey Williams

Chroma Watch - Bestsellers Chroma is a 38mm diameter (1.50 inch) unisex watch utilizing Swiss parts. While Chromas numerals change color every second, the hour hand colors merge from one color palette to another more gradually creating beautiful hues of the color spectrum. See how this watch displays time: The seconds minutes and hours pass across the evolving colors of the dial displaying a kaleidoscope Munsell measurement (the Munsell Measurement is the standard measure of three dimensions of color: tone, value and color purity). There are no visible lugs, providing a seamless connection from band to watch case.
