London architect and artist Daniel Widrig has taken 3D printing to another level. He has created a unique, custom collection of wearable sculptures.His creations  are abstract three dimensional forms , each one customised to fit the unique shape of the wearer. The soft and sinuous lines in Widrig’s 3D-printed collection share the fluid lines and textures often found in  the work of his mentor  and visionary architect, Zaha Hadid  in whose practice he was significantly involved,  designing some of Hadid’s most iconic buildings and products.

The collection is  made using  a polyamide material, with each piece being  laser-formed into  patterns that interact with the organic forms of the body. Created by taking 3D  body scans Widrig was able to customize each piece to the unique configuration of the model’s body shape. Little Black Spine, for instance, is a piece that draws on the form of a skeleton and was designed to look like a natural extension of the model’s spine.

Daniel Widrig  established  his own studio in  London in 2009, Widrig’s studio now works in a broad range of fields including sculpture, fashion, furniture design and architecture.  Embracing digital systems since its early days, the studio holds a unique position in the field and is widely considered to be in the vanguard of digital art and design.                                                                  

Daniel has received international critical acclaim and has been published and exhibited internationally. He received a number of prestigious awards including the Swiss Arts Award, Feidad Merit Award and the Rome Prize.

The concept of creating unique wearable sculptures  to order means a transparent supply chain, no wastage and a small carbon footprint which apart from being covetable and exquisitely beautiful makes it more than worthy of being named Finding Eco Eco  Series 8 Icon No.9.
