Getting a handle on 3D printing

This beautiful door handle is proof that 3D print design just keeps getting better and better. The result of years of experimentation by Alexander Pelikan from Dutch studio PeLiDesign, it’s one of a series of stainless steel door handles titled ‘A Machine’s Perception’. In creating his design, the designer explored the errors thrown up by a 3D scan; the handle is his interpretation of the scanner’s perception. The handle is part of the contemporary art and design collection at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam.
