Decades after its invention, by now it is clear that 3D Printing is a manufacturing technology that can change and revolutionize the way we can make almost anything. Experts estimate that it will be a key technology in this century, enabling industrial developments that were impossible before. In fact, many products in our daily life are already prototyped or manufactured using 3D Printing. Given its expected future role, it is critical to examine how it can affect our environment, shape our society and change individual lives.
Curator Marta Malé-Alemany and Materialise come together to present MAKING A DIFFERENCE / A DIFFERENCE IN MAKING, an exhibition that looks at 3D Printing with both the eyes of fascination -inviting viewers to discover a production process that allows us to make things differently- and through a deeper observation, to ponder how it can help individuals, enable social changes and positively contribute to the environment. In other words, how 3D Printing is making a difference.

'Synthesis' is the study of a dialogue between two contrasting materials - resin and tar - and their negotiation for space and identity when forced to become a single unified entity.
Synthesis 1,2 & 3 were created for the exhibition, ‘Presence and Absence: New Works by Tom Price’ currently on show at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City (until 4 January 2015). Each of the works in the exhibition responds in different ways to the notion of presence and absence, exploring materials as diverse as resin, bronze, aluminium, coal and tar.
Tom continues to stretch the boundaries between art and design. See more of Tom's work here.

Outdoorz Gallery Designer Floris Wubben's new ceramic pieces entitled "Pressed" have been selected from over 600 international applicants for the Talente Award 2014. For more about the award click here
The vases made from epoxy-clay are pressed through the extrusion profiles of the 'Pressed' machine, developed by Floris. As a result, machine and human behavior will not only define the product’s shape but also its tint. Combinations
of the extrusion profiles are endless; therefore there are also an enormous variety of exclusive objects.
