Diederik Schneemann to present his Mash-Up collection during the Salone di Mobile, Milan 2013
Diederik Schneemann is presenting his Mash-Up collection at Ventura Lambrate during the Salone di Mobile, Milan 2013. The collection addresses important questions regarding 3D printing.
Clouded by the amazing and endless possibilities 3D printing keeps on offering us, we tend to neglect important issues that are emerging alongside this fast growing industry.
Currently one of the biggest trends in 3D printing is reproducing designs from databases on the internet. For free! By doing so, we bypass the rightful owner of the design and his copyright.
By carefully composing parts from the past and present, Diederik Schneemann creates controversial new pieces. The purpose of this collection is to highlight the issues we need to address, the flip side of 3D printing. His goal is not to show complex 3D printed designs but to raise questions on how to deal with copyright issues concerning 3D printing.
In 2011 Diederik presented his Flip-Flop Story at Ventura Lambrate. Addressing issues of waste and recycling, converting discarded Flip-Flops into colourful objects.
