Design Inspiration – Scandinavian Design

header_scandinavian

In our series on on what inspires us, we take a look at Scandinavian design.

A minimalist, contemporary and elegant style that keeps clean lines but plays around with different textures and materials to give the design more depth and interest.

Scandinavian design is characterized by the use of cool and light colors, the implementation of geometric patterns and the combination of natural materials with new high-tech resources.

The geometric theme is not only very popular in interior design but also jewelers get inspired by this style. Traditional materials such as wood and precious metals are used to create modern and sleek designs. Triangles, oak and light pastel colors make for a contemporary and elegant look.jewelry

We love this style so much because it allows us to play around with the latest techniques and materials such as 3D printing which allows us to create intricate geometric designs. In combination with more traditional materials like wood our awards and trophies get a warm look and feel!scandinavian_inspirationThe Scandinavian design was the primary inspiration for our most popular award design, the 3D text totem. The 3D printed text and oak foot form an harmonious award that can be fully customized to refer to the winner who will receive it.deloitte-3d-text-totemIf you like our text totems and you are looking for a unique award, you can create these text totems yourself in our webshop.

A company totem for Greatist

Greatist is company committed to helping you find the best way to a healthy and happy life.

For their offices they wanted a totem that represented their positive spirit and outlook on life and that would serve as a reminder to everyone to hold on to that healthy attitude and have fun while doing so.

The 3D Factory Designers created a totem that was based on the Greatist’s 5 icons.  A Thumbs Up, a leaf, a doughnut, a cattle bell and an avocado. greatist_trophy_iconsFrom the input above our designers created a really cool and whimsical totem that incorporated all elements.greatist_design
The final result is a 3D printed totem that was spray painted gold (for that glamorous look) and is perched on an oak foot that was laser engraved with the Greatist logo.
This was a really fun collaboration and it looks like friends at Greatist are really happy with their new company totem as well.
