At NVM we use cutting edge 3D printing technology to explore new possibilities for design. 100 years ago, machines and factories changed the way objects in our lives were produced. Designers and architects like Raymond Loewy and Mies van der Rohe responded with forms that expressed the spirit of the new machines: efficiency, speed, and precision. These designs came to represent the changes of their time and made the modern world more beautiful.
Today, a new set of technologies is changing the way objects are made. The smooth, unadorned shapes of the last century were driven by efficiency, but 3D printers can make complex shapes just as easily as simple ones. At NVM, we build pieces that express the ideals of this new technology, using 3D printers and scanners to do things that would be difficult, if not impossible, with traditional tools alone.
