3D Printed Jewelry
For us, process is at the heart of it all. The idea of Iteration has been instilled in our brains since first year architecture school. With Hot Pop Factory, we are applying the same philosophies to a smaller scale - jewelry. For all the ideas that were too complex, expensive, impractical or just too wild to construct into buildings, we want to make into 3D Printed wearable ART.
Each piece is created with computational design tools we use to design buildings, and fabricated with a Makerbot Replicator. Several prototypes of each piece were made before the designs were finalized.
The evolution of these prototypes poignantly embodies our journey from curiosity to discovery. We let our high-tech tools guide us in developing the seed of an idea and allowing it to grow into a small business. These technologies have empowered us to take full control of our design process. The result is a unique collection that is entirely designed, developed and produced from our cozy apartment in Toronto. The best part, we can sip beers, watch movies, and rock out to our favorite tunes while doing it all.
