Formon Core is designed for the end user, as a plug-and-play device. The whole approach in the design process was to remove the perceptual barriers from the user’s sight, such as cables, motors and other technical elements. By removing these items, Formon Core is psychologically perceived as simple and easy to use and consequentially understood on how it works. The box like appearance resembles a magic box which opens upwards and reveals the printed object. As opposed to the competitors in the market, Formon Core doesn’t look like a factory machine that is not home or office friendly.

An object can break itself but doesn't lose its value and its beauty. This is the philosophy of the ancient Japanese technique of Kintsugi, which means “to repair with gold”. What is broken is not a loss but becomes more precious and unique. In the Japanese culture no object must necessarily be perfect: everyone tells its story. Time passes by and from the signs of his passing, it comes a form of beauty even more powerful. Kintsugi tableware is born from this philosophy and makes the gold ornamentation current and geometric, stylish and elegant, for a timeless and luxurious mise en place.
Inspired by the hair structures occur in nature at different scales with multiple functionalities, Cilllia looks at new ways of 3D printing dense hair on flat and curved surfaces. It allows users to design and generate hair geometry at 50 micrometer resolution and assign various functionalities to the hair, such as mechanical adhesion property; new passive actuation and touch sensing on a 3D printed artifact. The project envisions a future where physical materials’ properties and functions, whether eletrical or mechanical can be encoded in the material fabrication process directly by users.
