KXX light: combining 3d printing with handicrafts
KXX is a multifunctional light, based on the traditional Afro-Brazilian caxixi instrument. The images show the result of my cooperation wiith capoeirista and artisan Cabral Elastico from Recife, Brazil, using a combination of Shapeways-printed nylon parts and woven natural fibers.
KXX is not for sale yet; I'm hoping to be able to bring this product to retail channels through a design and/or fairtrade brand in the near future.
