Vincent van der Horst | Crystallize

Vincent studied at the HTS (Architecture) and the HEAO (Communications) and earned his diploma in 1999 ”Industrial Product Design” at The Hague University. Searching for a broader perspective he started in 2004 ‘Crystallize Design Agency’ which focuses on inventing, developing and implementing creative and brightly designed products.

Darn Vase from potential waste Vincent creates a graceful vase.


Like the pod, the material of these flowers holder may, by its meltability, be well reusable but it is the decision of your children, yourself want to keep this vase. Functionality and aesthetics are like a lid on a pot.

Soon everyone has a 3D printer. The self- printing of furniture will be as normal as the convening of a sandwich. As a 3D designer you obviously can not keep up with the introduction of a revolutionary technique. The technique is still good for smaller batches. Some products can not be produced by 10,000 because the market is too small. Many good product ideas is the small batch size just it the force. It guarantees exclusivity. This allows the design of products can be much more pronounced while keeping costs manageable.

Also, the technique offers possibilities to create shapes which are not to be manufactured with common industrial techniques. The only alternative is that such a product is to be made ​​by hand . At the same time; the degree of complexity and accuracy that comes within reach with 3D printing is unmatched.

I ‘m not an ambassador for 3D printing; who is going to compensate for the time I spend on inventing and developing the designs that I make and how do I prevent my hard work is up for grabs on the Internet? The investment that you do as a creative person (time) is not to earn back. An interesting tension between creative inspiration and vulgar capitalism. The pot vase trying to visualize a positive way. A mass- produced industrial packaging jar that usually disappears into the bottle bank, get a second life as colorful vase in which the flowers express the hope for a bright future.
