For the Centre Pompidou, Bold Design imagined an artistic and educational workshop, "The Shape of Emotions". The frame of the masks, the centerpiece of the creations, was produced by us using additive manufacturing.

Digital and traditional technologies

As part of the prelude to the "Centre Pompidou Francilien - Fabrique de l'Art", due to open in Massy, Essonne in 2025, the design duo William Boujon and Julien Benayoun responded to a call for projects for children's art workshops. Their approach combines traditional techniques with digital technologies. Logically, it was on this basis that they came up with an electric truck (thanks to Rent-A-Car), decked out in the colors of the Centre Pompidou. The mobile unit, fitted out to accommodate different types of workshop and equipped with various storage modules, includes, for example, a clay extruder alongside scissors and glue.

From design to additive manufacturing

Bold Design's workshop invites children and their parents to create masks as mirrors of emotions, using a wide variety of tools and materials. The frame of the mask-face to be created is a 3D-printed flat surface. This object, printed on our Cosmyx Nova printers, is produced in small, precise series, taking into account the customer's requirements. The advantages of small-scale printing or prototyping are manifold.

At each creation station, a box opens with the necessary manufacturing equipment based on a specific technique. A pastel-colored 3D-printed mask is the basis for each child's creation.

Participants imagine the different components of a face, while experiencing first-hand the qualities of these materials and their shaping techniques.


What are the advantages for your prototypes and small series?

. Reliability: the precision of our 3D printers and the choice of quality filaments guarantee objects that enhance design.

. Cost: from an image or an object, we are able to create its 3D model, then reproduce it in additive manufacturing.

. Speed : our turnaround times are subject to just one constraint: receipt of your specifications.

. Choice of materials: we advise you on the choice of suitable material: plastic, wood fiber, copper, biodegradable filament...

Our Cosmyx Nova printer farm enables us to process your small-series additive manufacturing order quickly.
