BUBBLE OPERA / LUMINOUS OBJECT
An amazing luminous object, where four soap bubbles are joined together, in reference to “Synthesis” event’s participants (3Discover.it, Growthobjects, Autodesk and DWS). Part of the new customized objects for “Synthesis”, 3D printing creative event & exhbition through a retrospective of Growthobjects’ work at Fuorisalone Milan Design Week 2014.

The name of the event and projects comes from the 3Discover.it’s initiative to organize an event mixing design, software and hardware through 3D printing revolution. We thought that Synthesis’ name fits because it refers to a combination of some entities that together form something new.
We considered to find the best geometric shape that represented the synergies of the event, and we thought in the soap bubbles, where assembling several bubbles results in a foam, and the soap bubbles usually last for only a few seconds before bursting, in some way as this temporary creative event.
All our custom projects for the event was focused around bubbles concept.
In the backside we created the soap foam’s structure (voronoi cells) and when you switch on the inside light, the structure appears in a surprising effect!
We have included “Fuorisalone 2014″ in Braille code, following the aim of the exhibition of developing the physical aspect as well as the visibile by offering the opportunity to people with visual disabilities to interact directly with the works.
Our new works for the event were created using Autodesk’s Apps such as Meshmixer and the XFAB, a new Stereolithography 3D printer produced by DWS.
