A table held together with a pair of 3-D printed connectors walked away with the 2014 Interieur Awards Grand Prize, unanimously selected last month by an international jury. Held in tandem with the annual Belgian design event Biennale Interieur, the Grand Prize winner was the Keystones Table by Minale Maeda, a Japanese/Italian design team, based in Rotterdam. Minale Maeda’s table, a simple and elegant design, was deemed remarkable for the pair of intricately formed 3-D printed elements that securely hold all the table’s pieces together without the use of additional components. Rather, 3-D printed screws, built into the connectors, act as clamps, creating an exquisitely balanced spatial network into which each piece of the table fits. Minale Maeda’s application of 3-D printed technology can be customized to a range of furnishings, with the potential for onsite printing reducing transportation costs for the remaining elements.
