The ongoing New York Design Week, which runs until May 17th, is showcasing a number of stunning design works from around the globe in such varied fields as fashion, architecture, jewelry, and object design. Among the design objects debuted over the past week was a collection of both innovative and beautiful household design items created by New York-based design studio OTHR in collaboration with a number of recognized designers from around the world. The collection, which marks the first products put out by OTHR, consists of twelve 3D printed household objects, each bearing distinction in terms of utility, aesthetics, and uniqueness.

OTHR, which was founded by designers Joe Doucet, Dean Disimone, and Evan Clabots, was established on the principle of creating functional and decorative household items that could help bring technological manufacturing from being novelty to the mainstream. The online design platform, which as just mentioned has unveiled its first dozen products, will be releasing more products, developed in collaboration with leading designers and design studios, on a bi-weekly basis.

So far, the design objects presented by OTHR at New York Design Week include a number of stunning pieces such as candleholder set designed by Sebastien Bergne and 3D printed out of a matte black steel, a catchall dish by Paul Leobach 3D printed from porcelain, a 3D printed serving plate and knife set designed by Michael Sodeau, a set of 3D printed juicers designed by Everything Elevated, a 3D printed bottle opener by Fort Standard, and many more. Other designers they have collaborated with include Brad Ascalon, Claesson Koivisto Rune, Jonah Takagi, Philippe Malouin, and Todd Bracher.

OTHR is also based on a philosophy of sustainability, for which 3D printing has been a key element. That is, the designers behind OTHR have managed to maintain a low environmental impact by only manufacturing their design objects when they have been ordered. As they explain on their website, “By using technologies such as 3D printing, we avoid having to create more objects than there are homes for. Our objects do not physically exist until you choose to own one–each is embedded with a unique number to reflect your participation in its creation.”

Additionally, 3D printing has allowed the design platform to create locally, without having to ship materials halfway around the world, and eliminates the need for warehouse management and storage space, which also effectively cuts down its environmental impact.

The products listed on their online shop range in price between $50-$290, and can be made in a number of different finishes (though some, like the utensils are made in a chosen material like polished bronze or gold for aesthetic and quality purposes). Be sure to check back with OTHR every two weeks to see what new designers they are working with and what new designs can be purchased.
