dutch designer rick tegelaar works with undervalued materials such as wire mesh and waste wood. by re-examining these materials, new applications of the elements arise. through pragmatic experiments and theoretical research, rick discovered the capability of colback to be 3D printed exceptionally well. he customized the FDM (fused deposition modeling) printing process for colback yarns. the self-made machine stretches over 2 meters which enables tests on a decent scale.

tegelaar‘s project is part of the in4nite art collective — the result of a collaboration between ten designers from arnhem, and is the leading manufacturer in high performance materials. during dutch design week in eindhoven, the collective presented themselves to the public. the interdisciplinary team, consisting of product designers, architects and graphic designers, has been experimenting with colback, a nonwoven fabric manufactured by low & bonar. during the design process, the boundaries of the material and the imagination of the designers have been stretched to the utmost. a cross pollination between design, R&D and manufacturing industry, resulted in fascinating designs and products.
