In 2014, I designed the world’s first full-size 3D printed bicycle frame, produced as a single piece. This was a vision for the future highlighting how 3D printing technology enabled a completely new way to imagine the products around us. The bicycle went on to be exhibited around the world for several years, including at venues like the Red Dot Design Museum (Essen, Germany) and BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts (Brussels, Belgium).
Today the bicycle frame lives on as a NFT, meaning anyone can own this design, 3D print it, or build upon it. When you purchase the NFT, you unlock access to the original CAD files (including all additional bike parts e.g. wheels, handlebars, etc), as well as the original STL file 3D printed by Materialise.
