Crossing Parallels – Basket #180811
This unique piece was made at the encounter of two techniques: rotary 3D printing and traditional coiling.
“Crossing Parallels” explores the interaction between the basketry technique of hand coiling and 3D-printing. Both techniques build objects through the same construction principle, laying one filament—whether natural fibre or melted plastic—on top of another. By making objects at the crossroads between handicraft and digital craft, Amandine David aims to contribute to a more nuanced definition of craft as collaborative practice.
This piece benefited from the contribution and technical mastery of basket weaver Esmé Hofman and 3D-printing artisan Joris van Tubergen.

Amandine David is a Brussels based designer and researcher whose work celebrates sharing as a methodology and opportunity to redefine design processes.
Her research is located at the crossroad of traditional crafts and digital practices. It usually takes shape in the creation of tools and material experimentation libraries.
Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making.
The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
