Slicelab is a multi-disciplinary and experimental design studio based in New York and Denver. It was founded in 2021 by architects Arthur Azoulai and Diego Taccioli. They both specialize in digital design and fabrication, while searching the balance between simplicity and complexity.
With an innovative design, Slicelab has experimented with concrete and 3D printing to create “Delicate Density”, an unique table that fuses a perfect balance between delicateness in form and strength in dentistry according to the designers. A perfect balance.
“Delicate Density” is therefore a perfect name to address the design, which features an unremarkable minimal approach.
For said project the company partnered with Concrete Works and Hummingbird3D to explore using concrete and 3D printed molds. The result? A delicate and detailed, yet structurally very rigid piece of furniture. According to Slicelab:
“Standard FDM prints create 23 pieces of PLA plastic molds that fasten together to create a large 5ft investment moldable to withstand up to 200 lbs of unreinforced Ultra-High-Performance Concrete.
But 3D printing is not only being used for interior design. The trending technology has become a solution in different areas and industries. For example, construction company ICON’s 3D is building printed houses in Texas. On the other hand, Superstrata has also designed a carbon fiber 3D printed bike.
