Breaking news from the Studio of the very talented Francis Bitonti, best known for the laser sintered 3D printed dress he created for Dita Von Teese. Francis Bitoni Studio will offer a limited edition run of exclusively cloud manufactured home goods:
From the video description:
The world’s first commercially available product line produced in entirety by cloud manufacturing. With the effort to dematerialize and decentralize manufacturing, we have reinvented the factory to build a new production and distribution infrastructure from the ground up. This limited edition run of home goods will be locally produced on demand by a hand-selected network of 3D printers located around the world. Moving from selling direct products, with this capsule collection we will be exclusively selling limited release data through each hub.
And from the Francis Bitoni Studio website:
Defining the visual and formal language of our generation, Francis Bitonti Studio will be releasing their first ever collection of luxury goods Fall 2014. With a strong focus on 3d printed fine jewelry and multi-material accessories, continuing into ready-to-wear in 2015, Francis Bitonti’s first collection, driven by computational design techniques and emerging manufacturing technologies, will be available exclusively in limited edition, with each piece made to order and serialized. The collection will be available internationally with pre-orders beginning early Fall 2014.
