Spring and hinge

Silvia Fado

Kinetic Traces collection, 2014.

Prototype that combines traditional making and rapid prototyping. For this design the artist has used 3D scaning and 3D printing technologies, adding to the crafted work a modern and technological aesthetic.

African wood was shaped and vegetan tanned leater was moulded and dyed in the studio. Stainless steel was used for the spring system.
