No one has implemented 3D printing innovation into the style industry really like NYC-based developer Francis Bitonti, who is becoming a household name due to his use of emerging technologies, such as 3D printing, algorithmic create generation, and smart materials to manufacture new style statements. From Dita Von Teese’s 3D printed gown to his Mutatio 3D Printed Shoe Collection, the Francis Bitonti Studio has not only proven that 3D printing innovation can be utilized in style, but it can be utilized quite tastefully as well. Now, Bitonti appears to be bringing his mind off of what we wear (for the moment at least) and focusing in on what we eat with at the dining room table.

Making use of the power of metal 3D printing and algorithmic generated create, the Francis Bitonti Studio has only released the ‘Setae Flatware’ collection, that showcases five pieces of metal utensils. The uniquely interwoven create appears to be inspired by Elven and Celtic folklore, looking fit for use at a royal Medieval dining table. Each piece of the flatware set is created up of a much like strand-based create that lands right in between uniqueness and functionality. After the metal 3D printed flatware is generated, a sterling silver finish is introduced to donate it a shiny veneer.

Four independent strands cohere and separate creating a landscape of fibers nestled into the hand, the studio says of the Setae Flatware create. “The separation and cohesion of these long linear elements is utilized to creates local difference to beautifully satisfy the demands of a functional set of flatware.

Unfortunately, there does not seem to be a retail source for the Setae Flatware set as of yet, but you can check out the rest of the Francis Bitonti Studio’s tech-influenced create work on their website. But the 3D printed flatware remains unavailable at the moment, the NYC-based developer’s work is foretelling a next where emerging technologies such as 3D printing are utilized to enhance what we wear and use on a daily basis. Hopefully, Bitonti can release the metal 3D printed flatware for purchase soon, so we can all gather at the dinning room table to dine as if we are in the court of majestic Elven royalty.
