Werner's Inverted World: The Bikini Island Collection for Moroso Berlin-based Werner Aisslinger, who German magazine Architektur & Wohnen named 2014’s Designer of the Year, has developed his fair share of sci-fi concepts for the home of the future: integrated, hydroponic “kitchen farming” systems, textile-lined bathrooms that absorb shower steam to create grey water, planters that actually grow furniture, and more. But here in the present, his visions for adapting to current technology seem decidedly more attainable. Cue the Bikini Island collection for Moroso, a line of modular furniture pieces that fit together like tangrams.

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.
