From 3D printing to straw marquetry, including FiDU (Freie Innendruck Umformung) technology and porcelain, since the early 2000s, designers have been combining craft skills and new technologies to explore new ways of creating. Hybrid and sometimes unclassifiable, whether unique pieces or mass produced, these objects reveal a new repertoire of forms, inseparably blending the intervention of the maker’s hand and state-of-the-art techniques.

Using specialised software, self-designed 3D printers, and by reviving craft techniques, each of the creators seeks continually to innovate, revisiting typologies, colours and materials. Amid the digital revolution, these creators are continuously breaking down a little more the frontiers separating the craftsman from the designer, and the designer from the craftsman.
