TAKT Project's 3-Pring Product rethinks MUJI goods with customized parts.

Created by Tokyo-based design agency TAKT Project, the 3-Pring Product project is a DIY proposal that extends the functions and capabilities of “finished” products through the addition of custom 3D-printed parts.

The customized modules help turn an alarm clock to a wall-mounted device, chairs and a cardboard into a table, a plastic container into a ceiling lamp, plastic file boxes into a book rack, and more.

The description on the project page likens 3-Pring Product to “sampling techniques” used in the music industry where a track can be created by “quoting tracks and sounds in the past.” 3-Pring Product creates an original product by adding custom-made parts while “remixing” a ready-made product.
