Torus Bracelet by Claesson Koivisto Rune
Swedish design trio Claesson Koivisto Rune have collaborated with Stockholm design and manufacturing company DTFS Factory to create a 3-dimensional printed bracelet assembled solely from 2208 individual plastic links.
The Torus bracelet is created via selective laser sintering (SLS), a manufacturing technique that uses a high power laser to fuse small particles of plastic, metal, and ceramic or glass powders into a desired 3-dimensional shape. With precision made distances between the links, the bracelet feels similar to a textile fabric.
‘With Torus, Claesson Koivisto Rune has pushed the boundaries for what is possible within the SLS manufacturing technique,’ notes DTFS Factory. ‘It is a bracelet that perfectly shows the infiltration of architectural construction into fashion and visa versa.’
Manufactured in Belgium, Torus is made to order and takes four hours to print. The bracelet is available currently in six colours from the DTFS Factory shop.
