belgian creative studio coming soon has 3D printed a set of information graphics for the annual report of biopharmaceutical company ablynx. the series of eight illustrations blends physical printed components with digital graphics and typography. each of the compositions describe a sequence of performance, operating, or income statistics through a playful yet explanatory visual system. colorful 3D printed forms have been made in the shape of pie charts, line, and bar graphs, with accompanying text delineating the collected data and exact figures. each of the plastic pieces have been carefully constructed and configured to correlate to existing statistical information sourced from the company. the final stages of the compositions include the addition of miniature figures, which have been made to interact with the diagrams — climbing on, swinging from and walking through the plastic pieces.
