V&A furniture exhibition

We went to the new furniture exhibition at the V&A last Friday. It is worth a visit, especially the display of the latest technology products.

They have a coffee table made on a 3D printer - wow!!! We were really impressed by the endless opportunities and the idea of printing out movable parts lie joints.

The table is made from Nylon and took 7-10 days to print. have a look at the V&A website here:

how it was made

The videos show how the table was printed. There is also a video showing the latest CNC produced chair. I have started saving my pennies. Now, come to think of it... I would rather buy a new hand tool and it is a lot cheaper!
