The online 3D printing store iMakr, operating the world’s largest 3D Printing store, have announced their collaboration with heritage department store Selfridges to create a pop-up 3D printing destination. From October 24 to the end of 2013, the store will showcase a selection of iMakr’s printers and 3D Art from a range of renowned designers.
The pop-up will be based on the ground floor of the department store and will exhibit an affordable range of products with free demonstrations including a free full body 3D scanning installation where customers can produce their own personalised 3D miniature.
iMakr have partnered with World Interiors News for the Annual Awards ceremony held at the Saatchi Gallery, London on 28 November. The company are designing stunning bespoke 3D printed trophies, which will be presented to the winners of the interior design competition, and will also provide a live 3D print on site for the final winning trophy.
iMakr with the help of MyMiniFactory.com, the online platform of Free 3D Printable files, will display a selection of beautiful and useful 3D Printed objects at the Selfridges store. Sylvain Preumont, founder and director at iMakr, says: “Since the opening of iMakr Store, two months ago, we have received numerous requests for partnership. I’m delighted to bring 3D Printing in Selfridges, an iconic, vibrant, luxurious and innovative department store.”
