Poilu Vases Are 3D Printed with Implanted “Hair”

While doing research on materials, Paris-based Studio Bold created a collection of 3D printed vases where “hair” is implanted during the printing process with the hope of bulking up the shape.

Each vase – Blond, Brun, and Roux – is numbered and signed in limited editions of 8 (+ 2AP + 2P) and are available via Aybar Gallery. Read More
