Digital sculptor Janne Kyttanen always pushes the boundaries when it comes to what 3D printing can do – it’s always a surprise what he’s able to make. From tables, seating, lighting, and sculptures, he’s changing the way these home furnishings are made. Take a look at the latest work he recently presented during last month’s Design Miami / Basel.

The Sedona series expands with the Bronze Sedona Lounge Table in its new mirror bronze finish. The pattern mimics that of the red rocks of Sedona with it’s peaks and plateaus. Previously, it was released in another finish.

The oversized Avoid Chandelier is a glowing ring perforated with a complex diamond pattern that emits an intricate pattern of light. It debuted at Gallery ALL last month.

Last year, Kyttanen released a few new pieces, including the Metsidian, and now he’s expanded the collection to include the Rose Gold Metsidian Tray, Shelf, and Side Table. The result of the sculptural pieces comes from a single moment – an eruption – that joins two divergent materials together, organic volcanic obsidian that becomes a mesh of sorts.

“The form of this design is influenced by Lie sphere geometry, a geometrical theory in which the fundamental concept is the sphere. In Lie sphere geometry all lines should be regarded as spheres of infinite radius and points in the plane should be regarded as spheres of zero radius.”

The Rollercoaster Table is made from infinite spirals and features a sandblasted Moët & Chandon Champagne finish.

Them Romans are three mirror-finish bronze sculptures that are to be viewed as a triptych.

Josh Sperling’s work is the kind of art that makes you pause and try to figure out how it’s made. It also inspires all kinds of ideas as to what each abstract piece might be, kind of Rorschach-like. The New York-based artist’s work features bold, contemporary colors and structured shapes that form abstract paintings of interlocked canvases. The components of each sculptural painting are made from stacked wooden shapes with painted canvas stretched around them. The pieces then fit together into a geometric puzzle. The texture created from the stacked wood below gives each shape an extra layer of interest.

This Butter Packaging Reveals…

Butter Plus uses an innovative thermoforming and injection molding process to suggest an alternative to the way butter packaging is usually designed. This dairy product is most often found in blocks that are wrapped in foil, which is usually a hassle to protect once a sliver has been unwrapped.

As a solution to crumpled foil that barely covers a block of used butter, the Weidenhammer Packaging Group devised a system that uses a semicircle shape; the block of butter inside can be rotated outward for use and returned for safe keeping. Now that the concept has been fully realized, the charming butter packaging system is currently being prepared for large-scale production by Weidenhammer.

In a slightly larger size, it’s also easy to imagine that this could work just as well for serving an assortment of cheeses.
