Carve is a family of tables made with 3D printing technology from environmentally friendly, renewable PLA thermoplastic of organic origin produced from biomass. The idea of making tables using 3D printing technology came from thinking about combining digital and analog production technology, i.e. the virtual and real world, where I found the idea that a digital “intangible” model is materialized, literally in front of your eyes, using the 3D printing method. The structure of the table, which consists of the frame and legs, is made using the aforementioned 3D printing technique, and a 6mm thick top made of tempered glass is placed on the finished structure. In order to enhance the impression of “digital” on the materialized table, a raster is applied to the glass top using the UV printing technique, which changes from full color to transparent towards the middle of the table and visually dematerializes it.
