Victoria Slaker, the vice-president of industrial design at Ammunition, talks about the studio’s collaboration with 3D-printing platform Gantri to create lights made from corn-based plastic

 .

How did this project come to fruition? “Ian [Yang, the founder of Gantri] reached out to us about designing lights. We’re pretty tech-forward and always curious about new manufacturing techniques. We ended up helping him expand his platform so more designers could use it and create a wider range of products.”

 .

Why lighting? “It’s emotional and atmospheric. The light series was an exploration of what we can do that you can’t do in any other way. They can only be 3D-printed.”
