Nowadays 3D printing is receiving a lot of attention. This technique offers many possibilities and more and more people are working with it. In recent years, 3D printing has developed a lot, the possibilities and used materials are almost endless. However, the 3D printer is often only used for form studies or as a start to an end process. This formal freedom of other designers has challenged me to use the 3D printing technique as an end process. This technique, in combination with my preference for modular constructions and asymmetry, has led to research that has shown that the functioning of a 3D print as an end process is actually possible.

STRUCTURES is a series of furniture and products. This series has a unique and effective coupling system. Various constructions have been created by combining pipe material and 3D-printed connecting pieces. The parts are produced using professional techniques such as laser cutting and 3D-printing, which leads to great results. By using these techniques it is also easier to make the products more to your own taste. For example, it is possible to personalize the products by including company names, logos and initials in these products. In addition, it is also possible to determine the color and material of each part yourself.
