In 2004, Materialise.MGX started a project with French designer Patrick Jouin, who had discovered the Rapid Prototyping techniques Selective Laser Sintering and Stereolithography, as they were developed and used by Materialise. This encounter lead to SOLID, an amazing collection of self-produced furniture designs, which are the result of Patrick Jouin's research into the possibilities and qualities of these stunning techniques. Up till now, the RP techniques had only been used for small-scaled models in plastic, but together with Materialise.MGX, Patrick Jouin is now taking the entire process to another level, previously unheard of. This collection shows the endless possibilities and the great potential that lies in these remarkable manufacturing techniques as they have been developed by Materialise NV. Pieces and forms that were previously impossible to build by any mould, can now be produced on a large scale.
