3D Printed Vase #5: Design Libero Lace Vases
What’s special? Designer Libero Rutilo created a collection of design vases combining upcycling and 3D printing technology. If you have a old, unused 0,5-liter PET bottle, you can simply put the vase over the bottle. The idea was to create a vase conserving only its silhouette. The vase itself represents an external shell with an inner neck fillet so that it can be screwed onto a bottle like a cap. The 3D printed structure dresses the bottle and makes it disappear under its mesh. Read more about it here.
