Limited Edition of 5
JK3D presented the Crystal Lamellas for the first time at The Gritti Palace, a Luxury Collection Hotel , in Venice. The installation was part of the Italian Glass Weeks 2022.
The Crystal Lamella limited edition is currently exhibited at the millstART exhibition in Stift Millstatt, Canrinthia in Austria. The exhibition is open from June until October 2023. The design features 3D printed sand bases in two tones: Ash and Sand.
The Crystal Lamellas feature a digitally crafted 3D design that is inspired by the structure, performance and colors of the gills and lamellae of fungi. The design is 3D-printed spirally as a single shell using only the material required. The Crystal Lamellas emphasizes the uniqueness of natural objects, where no two are alike.
The installation features digitally crafted glass sculptures, which are manufactured by Swarovski, through their cutting-edge glass 3D-printing technology and individually coated with their iconic colorization technologies.
The installation is showcased on a sculpted base that organically embodies the sculptures and is 3D-printed from sand; accentuating the connection between two unique states of a single material, yet in different advanced technologies and a symbiotic form.
