In video interview for London’s Design Museum, designer Ron Arad compares our obsession and current overuse of 3D printing to how musicians “abused” synthesizers in songs.

Is Our Obsession With 3D Printing Degrading The Technology? [Video]

Dezeen reports that the museum’s current exhibition ‘The Future is Here‘, which runs until October 29th, features some of Arad’s 3D printed spiral designs from his ‘Not Made by Hand, Not Made in China’ series. Arad talks about how exciting it was to experiment with 3D printing when it was a new way of making things, but says it has become overused:

The technology completely took over the studio and it was the most interesting thing we were dealing with, and predictably it became commonplace. Synthesisers were abused completely and so is this technology we’re talking about.
