The 3D Printer of the Assembly atelier of Social label is the point of departure for designer Iris Toonen. From here, she begins her research into material and technique with her love for colour and tactility. Various colourful filaments lead to individual elements that mix together to form new colours using transparencies and grids. Iris asked designer Herman Hondebrink to support her with the technical implementation. The makers can compose and assemble as they see fit, each maker creating their own unique mirror.
