Crystal Palace is a project combining 3D printing and the study of crystallization phenomena. This experimental approach allows Döppel Studio to question a subject inherent in design: serial production and the notion of a unique piece. How from a single 3D file, mold or model, produce clones each with notable differences, how to create something unique in the series?
Flexible wire structures are immersed for several hours in a mineral solution at high temperature, after cooling for a few minutes, a crystalline skin covers the object. The crystal here plays both the role of structure and surface, bringing rigidity and uniqueness to the final object.
