The Satori and Mahdi Naim collection is aimed at improving the WFH lifestyle
Satori, the London-based manufacturer of professional 3D printers, recently announced their partnership with Mahdi Naim Design Lab, following the recent launch of their desktop-sized industrial 3D printer, the ST1600. Satori’s collaboration with the Morrocan avant-garde design studio is centered around connecting art and technology, and 3D printing with a purpose.
Mahdi Naim, creator of Mahdi Naim Design Lab commented, “I am thrilled to be working with Satori to explore the limits of 3D printing with a purpose. I am passionate about connecting technology, language, and emotion through my designs and I believe Satori is the perfect partner to make this happen.”
Satori and Mahdi Naim Collection
The Satori and Mahdi Naim collection is based around the idea that 3D printing should be used as a solution to a problem. The exclusive partnership will be a series of projects, with the first project focusing on the importance of mental wellbeing and empathy in reaction to national lockdowns around the world. Due to the pandemic, people around the globe are currently connected through shared experiences such as working from home (WFH). Designed with a purpose, the Satori and Mahdi Naim collection is based on creating useful, 3D printed WFH tools, with both an aesthetic design and functionality in mind, to inspire and improve your living and workspace at home.
According to Chengxi Wang, CEO of Satori, “At Satori, we wish to inspire global innovators to create value and make a difference with our 3D printing technology. Instead of rocket science, we encourage people to use our technology to create meaningful objects to address the most pertinent issues in daily life. We are excited to work with Mahdi Naim Design Lab to push the boundaries of 3D printing, and create something with a social impact.”
The initial Satori and Mahdi Naim collection is made up of three products 3D printed by the ST1600, including an intricate laptop stand, an aesthetic stationery organiser, and a multi-purpose USB holder that acts as a stress ball thanks to its flexible outer material. Each design is functional with an artistic value, to create joy in our surroundings through playful avant-garde interior design pieces. What differentiates this 3D printed collection from what’s available in the current market is that the design is optimized with a lattice structure to achieve optimal function with minimal material (less is more). Compared to the traditional manufacturing process, the flexibility of Satori 3D printing empowers the designers to create whatever shape they have in their imagination and combine the ultimate artistic expression with usability. The laptop stand for example is based on a whalebone structure with a modern twist, while the nose of the stand acts as a comfortable space to place your hand while using the mousepad, proving the functionality of the design.
This is only the beginning, Satori and Mahdi Naim Design Lab have further inspiring projects currently in development, including a social initiative to pioneer 3D printing in Africa.
