The Butterfly Screen – designed by Joris Laarman Lab – one of the latest experimental sculptural work MX3D produced, is the first in a collection of sculptural screens varying in sizes, geometries and materials. Even multi-material gradients from bronze to steel are in the planning. The computationally generated esthetics of the screens are not just pleasing to the eye but are also pushing the boundaries of our technology. 3d printing on this scale is unexplored territory so we are learning as we develop new sculptural work.

For every new form language, a specific strategy is developed resulting in a large library of strategies that will become self-learning in the near future. The butterfly screen is a 2 x 3 meter double curved bronze surface based on a hexagonal cell division.

The Butterfly Screen is presented from June 14 – 19, 2016 in Miami at Art Basel.
