Antwerp-based design studio Unfold presents Stratigraphic Manufactury in the inaugural Istanbul Design Biennial. This project features Unfold's continuing work on ceramic 3d printing and its implications on design and manufacturing.

Unfold sent a set of digital 3d files of bowls and vases to various manufacturers around the world who have acquired the 3d printing production method that Unfold created and open sourced in 2009. These producers were instructed not to alter the digital files but were free to manufacture them in porcelain with their personal and local influences using 3D printers.

Stratigraphic Manufactury is a new model for the distribution and digital manufacturing of porcelain, which includes local small manufacturing units that are globally connected. One that embraces local production variations and influences.

Unfold have also operated a manufacturing unit and shop at the biennial in collaboration with local ceramists.

The resulting objects are on show at the Adhocracy exhibition at the inaugural Istanbul Design Biennial.

This movie below shows the 3D printing of a porcelain vase by Unfold.
