Growing numbers of manufacturers and designers are switching to 3D printing for furniture and interior construction. The special Digital 3D Surfaces event area at the coming interzum will focus on the latest developments in the field of surfaces. The key themes at the event area will be creativity, faster response times and greater flexibility in home living and interior decor.
Today’s digital printers print “surfaces” that are not only tactile, three-dimensional and, where desired, very durable, but also in large formats, at cost-effective print speeds and to the highest quality. For furniture and interior design, this opens up new potential for creativity and flexibility. interzum 2017 will present current developments in this field at the special Digital 3D Surfaces event area. The exhibition is curated by the renowned designer and trends researcher Rolf Warda.

Leading manufacturers will present examples of digital industrial manufacturing using wood, ceramics, glass, textiles, metals and other materials. Experts will offer insights into technologies, software and services. They will cover the complete process chain – “from theory into practice, from laboratory sample to industrial scale”, as Rolf Warda puts it. The exhibition will explore the choice of printers and inks as well as how complete solutions can be developed from a single source. It will offer inspiring examples of cutting-edge 3D printing technology for architects, product designers and decision makers in furniture and interior construction.
The special Digital 3D Surfaces exhibition will be on show at interzum in Hall 10.2/Stand D 80 from 16 to 19 May 2017.
