Designer Alissia Melka-Teichroew’s 3D printed Jointed Jewels range was recently unveiled as part of Ventura Berlin at the Quibique design trade show.
She takes advantage of several 3D print properties including most importantly one - that allows objects to be (almost) completely encapsulated, thus allowing ball joints (very similar to car and trailer towing points) to be created already assembled in the printer.
Melka-Teichroew’s work has previously been featured on Ponoko, Kristen was lucky enough to interview her back in August.
