3D printing has long been used behind-the-scenes in architecture and design, but now, you can actually buy, and wear, 3D printed designs. Jenny Wu, the founder of a 3D printed jewelry company based in Los Angeles, is one name making it happen.
Interestingly, Wu's background isn't in fashion or jewelry design — it's in architecture, which is how she became familiar with 3D printing in the first place. In 2004, she cofounded the Oyler Wu Collaborative, an architecture firm known for impressive projects such as Hollywood's Culinary Lab and The Cube, a four-story steel and rope installation, which was on display next to the Olympic Stadium for the 2013 Beijing Biennale.
We caught up with Wu to better understand the art of 3D printing.
