In Oakland, in the Bay Area, a housing emergency has eased restrictions on the construction of secondary units or houses in the yard.

This provision brought to mind Emerging Objects, a Californian studio founded by Ronald Rael and Virginia san Fratello specialized in 3D printing, the idea of building a "Cabin of Curiosities" to show the adaptability of additive manufacturing materials.

Thus an interesting small experimental structure was born with the façade covered with 4,500 ceramic tiles, such as "Planter Tile" and "Seed Stitch Tile", printed in 3D and made of sawdust, Portland cement, bio-plastics based on corn and pomace of chardonnay grapes.

The "Planter Tile" have pockets for growing vegetation. The "Seed Stitch" cards, on the other hand, imitate the knitting technique from which they take their name and are intentionally printed at high speed to encourage the kind of unevenness you might find in hand-made objects. There are no two identical "Seed Stitch" cards.

Inside, Emerging Objects covered the walls and the ceiling with translucent "Chroma Curl Wall" tiles with customized relief textures. Other 3D printed objects, such as lamps and furniture, are scattered throughout the room.

The horizon of sustainable and personalized homes is infinite.
