Vine’s simple and pure forms embody the core capabilities of Forust’s printing systems in its ability to create elegant, one-of-a-kind products. The collection adds a naturalistic feel to any home and perfect for storing those easy-to-misplace items. Each can be presented on its own or layered with other pieces on a console, coffee table, or entryway table, with or without botanicals or other items. The multi-functional shapes and sizes make the Vine collection easy to pair with other home decor.
In exploring the unique capabilities of the technology, fuseproject arrived at designing each piece from a singular extrusion point that twists up into a simple, repeating pattern to create its shape. The collection is printed with cylindrical rods of the same diameter and requires no additional connecting pieces or adhesives. The wood material twists and convexes, expanding to create curvature and leaving intentional space between each rod.
Vine’s curving, organic form juxtaposes against its dense but lightweight wood and bioresin composition that exhibits the same functionality and structural durability as conventional wood. The sawdust, bounded by the bioresin, presents itself with the familiarity and warmth of wood but honors the otherwise wastestream-bound byproduct by giving it new life.
