-TECTONIC FORCES- 2020
Designer Maartje Dijkstra developed the therm 'manual 3D printing'; using a 3D printer pen as progressive tool to construct illustrative lines, structures and surfaces.
A big inspiration within developing and creating this bold, shimmering handbag collection are forces of nature, influences and details from the Baroque period and dead nature like ivory.
These unique bags are made from transparent TPU and a layer of hand printed flexible, 3D filament. The elements are printed in a special way using the following colors: black, holographic/multi color, apricot, gold, silver and salted/white pink. The shimmering layer is designed using unique traces of different surfaces like crystals, that will break the light into different eagles when wearing it.
The collection is build up out of 6 different unique designs, but other colors can be possible in commission. The bags are practical in size and shape and have a strong (hand printed) handle. A leather strap also makes it possible to carry the bag on the shoulder. The items can be ordered in different colors. When ordered multiple times, they will be different in detail, so there will always be only 1 of each bag.
