Some months ago I happened to read this article published by The Economist under the title ‘Print me an Stradivarius‘. If you know nothing at all about this disruptive manufacturing technology, this video will give you an insight into its implications:
Monitoring this kind of technical advances is something I love and obviously I can’t help but trying to predict its impact in our daily activities. Do you think that it’s too soon to think about this? Probably not, as I have found some companies that are already creating their jewelry pieces using the lost-wax casting process using a high-resolution 3D Wax print.
The world-wide spread of this technology will make mass personalization of products very affordable. I have been asked how could this affect Decimononic… well, naturally it would be really exciting to have access to this kind of technology, it offers vast possibilities. Anyway, there is something to be taken into consideration: one of our main commitments is offering unique tailored pieces and this is not going to change. After all most of Decimononic creations are handmade fine jewelry pieces that include elements with real historical value (therefore non-reproducible): antiques like vintage watch movements, collectible coins, natural semi-precious stones, etc.
There’s absolutely no doubt that we are living in a full of possibilities time.
