The market of generatively manufactured products will grow by an average figure of 30 % in the forthcoming years according to a forecast of some leading analysts regarding the market potentials of additive technologies. The manufacturing technologies having entered new competitive fields of application in the medical technology and in the aircraft industry, manufacturers of consumer goods are now getting into this field of technology. Examples of this development are customized spectacles or sports shoes. They are testing the manageable limits in connection with the additive manufacture thus having developed and created amazing projects in the past two years.

On behalf of Köln Messe, HAUTE INNOVATION presented the potentials of additive manufacture within the “Innovation of Interior” special exhibition at the FurniPro Asia and exhibited different application options for furniture and interior designers by means of developed case studies.
