From designing tableware, to large scale office furniture systems. Rock Galpin talks about one of the most challenging projects to date, in a private talk, at Dubai Design Week.
ME Dubai Hotel has just launched. This is the legacy project for the prolific, global architect, Zaha Hadid. See my exclusive review here for Hotel Designs Magazine.

3D printing is gathering speed with some very exciting new applications as designers use their creativity to explore how these new technologies can really be applied to the meaningful needs of today. We’ve moved on from 3D printing as an extraordinary effect and now we see a new reality emerging that can have real impact on mass, from car parts, bikes, homes to disabled and medical applications stemming from a technology which has truly extended what is now possible. Exciting times!
