From our workshop with Form Us With Love in Stockholm.
Our mission was to adapt or hack an everyday object. Me and Max choose the clothespin, a very everyday object which also makes 3D-printing and it's uses understandable for everyone!
Going back a few hundred years in time. The clothespin were actually a bit different from the ones we use today. We wanted to create a one-piece pin, suitable for the 3D-printer, so we looked at the orginal pin for inspiration. This reduces material waste not only by beeing printed, but also removes the metal-spring which todays pins use.
3D Models were made in Rhinoceros. To store them neat an upscaled clothespin also was made, to fit ten pins inside. The pins are hollow to further reduce waste and also to make them more flexible.
We also did a press-release note for media, and a poster that was used during the exhibition.
If you would like the drawings/printfiles for the pins, just get in touch and we will send them to you!
Thanks for watching!
