With the aim of raising awareness of the possibilities of design using 3D printing, we are Kickstarting to launch an exhibition of an army of 3D printed vases, called GeMo. Each GeMo will belong to our Kickstarter supporters. This will be an exhibition by YOU, for YOU!

GeMo is designed by an algorithm that creates over 500 individual vases. Each GeMo is individually unique, yet partially resembles its neighbouring relative. We call them Genetically Modified (GeMo).

Each GeMo is named after its supporter and will be sent to the owners after the exhibition. It is going to be printed in stainless steel, resin, ceramic and nylon. GeMo will no longer be produced after this exhibition. By supporting the GeMo campaign, you will help a one-of-a-kind and an exclusive design become recognized by a wider audience of art and design enthusiasts from around the world. This is a possibility that has emerged with the from the world of digital design and production.

Humble Beginnings...

It started with the intention of creating a unique but similar gift for three friends. Yet,  little did we know that our intentions would evolve into a 3D printing project. The design started from two geometrical, octagonal shapes that ultimately developed into GeMo. 

The form of each vase is generated from one of the fundamental components of Islamic art. It is made of two symmetrical octagons that merge into each other by using an algorithm. The algorithm uses repetition, rotation and symmetry to merge and develop the original shapes. This method is often used in creating traditional Islamic drawings and art.

The algorithms produce over 500 vases and each one is unique.

Now ... the whole army is ready digitally and we need them to be born. There is a limited amount of these available and we want you to be one of the first to get your hands on them.

We are eager to showcase the potentials of 3D printing by exhibiting the army of GeMo vases, that belong to our Kickstarter supporters, in an upcoming exhibition in London, in September.

The privileged owners and exhibitors, who have kindly pledged £35 or more, will have their GeMo sent to them once it has been showcased at the exhibition.

We are excited to announce that if our stretch goal of £50,000  is achieved, studio INTEGRATE will be able to 3D print an even larger army of GeMo vases!

When you order multiple vases, none of them will be the same! Unless, you order more than 100.

Rewards

About us...

GeMo is designed by studio INTEGRATE, an award winning architectural studio located in London. The studio was founded by Mehran Gharleghi and Amin Sadeghy, in 2011.

Risks and challenges

As you may well know, the innovation of 3D printing is a work in progress. Yet, we have extensively tested and experimented with GeMo in multiple materials, such as transparent resin, painted resin, stainless steel and ceramic. Now, the army of GeMo is ready but our challenge lies with our digital 3D models. In some cases, we are still working on certain models to make them printable in different materials. This is because each 3D printed material requires certain types of digital modelling. They need to be 3D printed in different thicknesses depending on the stiffness and flexibility of the material.
