A 3D printed Strand Garden from champagne producer Maison Perrier-Jouët was the “must-see” display at the Design Miami exhibition.

This past week at the prestigious global design forum Design Miami, one architect and designer provided an exceptional example of how 3D printing can be used to conjure up the meditative spirit of the great outdoors.

San Francisco-based architect Andrew Kudless, founder of the MATSYS design studio, was commissioned by Maison Perrier-Jouët to create an artistic forest display for their globally recognised champagne brand.

Now in their fifth year of partnership with the design forum, Perrier-Jouët’s 3D printed Strand Garden was regarded as one of the most innovative and calming exhibits presented at Design Miami.

If you had taken a stroll through the Perrier-Jouët exhibit, you’d find yourself immersed in the soothing glow of the “clearing in a forest”. In the center of the display was an illuminated 3D printed bioplastic “strand”.

Although this strand was 3D printed with a bioplastic material, it took on the appearance of an interwoven basket. Surrounding the centerpiece were eight internally-lit oak veneer “strands” along with groups of interlocking oak-topped benches.

The 3D Printed Strand Garden Centerpiece Was…

Though the illuminated 3D printed Strand Garden was the focal point of the exhibit, the most impressive part of the display was the 3D printed petal-like ice bucket that was propped up on top of it.

This Perrier-Jouët Marc Metamorphosis ice bucket was actually printed from Chardonnay skins, which were dried and grounded up into a powder material. This gave the ice bucket a true wrinkled and raisin-like texture as it dried after printing, a true testament to the champagne producer’s brand.

The artistic approach that Kudless and Perrier-Jouët took was clearly inspired by the organic and wavering nature of a forest. The versatility of 3D printing technology enabled the architect to create an exhibit that symbolized the champagne producer’s history and primary materials, including wood, chalk, glass, and of course, grapes.

With his innovative exhibition, Kudless proved that 3D printing technology can be effectively utilized to invoke the organic and interwoven spirit of nature.
