MIT developers unveiled a new experimental process that can quickly print entire pieces of furniture

MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab collaborated with Steelcase and award-winning product designer Christophe Guberan on a new experimental process called Rapid Liquid Printing. This breakthrough 3D printing technology physically draws a 3D object within a gel suspension. It enhances speed, scale and quality, exploring the future of furniture personalization and expanding opportunities for innovative customization.
