Super Tangible 3D printed business cards.
The Start Up zone features some fantastic new talent this year and one of those exciting names is Amsterdam based 3D design studio, Super Tangible. I met founder, Nanning De Jong, to find out what makes them so Super.
Well first of all, super heroes! Each member of the team has their own 3D printed business card in the form of a miniature super hero style avatar including their name and contact – I have been promised my very own at the end of the show.
This kind of innovation is what the company is based around and their focus is on product design and marketing campaigns. They have produced work for various clients and one piece in particular for an interior design firm was brought along to the show and featured a miniature loft design with a 3D printed sofa. Like the name says, the idea is to make something tangible.
Nanning says that the 3D printing industry is looking good as the technology becomes more affordable and accessible to an increasing number of people. Super Tangible is staying ahead of the game by using the latest technology to realise its ideas and new materials.
Demonstrating the company’s unique business cards, Nanning said: "This year they are stronger than ever with the latest 3D printing technology in full colour plastic. Before we had to print in full colour ceramics plaster but now we can get more details in. People just love them when they see them.”
