Although its origins lie in futuristic applications like manufacturing and prototyping, 3D printing also tends to be continually layered (pun not intended) in irony and kitsch, and LA-based design team The Sugar Lab want to capitalize on it.
Kyle and Liz von Hasseln, husband and wife duo behind the project, make novelty 3D-printed sculptures out of sugar. Fully edible, the designs are intended to be cake toppers or table centerpieces.
While the heads look weird, the coral-like designs are actually very intricate and pretty. They hope to eventually add flavoring to their creations. If 3D erotic designs haven’t been done yet, somebody better jump on that idea.
