Oooh, a Rubin vase with your very own face to display on the mantel: nerds and narcissists, this Fahz is for you.
Nick and Martha Desbiens of Desbiens Design Research will 3D print a Fahz vase using the techniques of everyone's favorite optical illusion and the faces of anyone who doesn't have a complex about their profile. Those who take the designers up on the offer will submit sideways mug shots for the Desbiens to convert into vector geometry, and use as the scaffolding for a 3D model that "merges the distinct profiles into a seamless sculptural form." Digital files are then 3D printed into lightweight PLA plastic Fahz vases.
Pledge for your own Fahz on Kickstarter through February 4, 2015. Choose from a 3" bud vase or slightly larger 5" vase. Depending on size and backing level, Fahzs can be printed with anywhere from 1 profile to a whopping 16 profiles for the big, fertile families out there.
