Maiko Fan by Piergil Fourquié
by Harry / March 27, 2013
The shape is reminiscent of a traditional (could say ancient, as far back as the 2nd century BC) Uchiwa bamboo and paper fan, but Piergil Fourquié's modern Maiko fan is 3D printed.

The material (polyamide) looks like a biscuit ceramic and is held with a small piece of wood painted with custom colours.

"The name refers to the Maiko, apprentice Japanese geisha artists, and the way that Japan projects an image somewhere between tradition and technology."

"The round shape comes from the traditional bamboo and paper 'Uchiwa' fan, but the object is realized by entirely by computer thanks to its manufacturing process, 3D printing".
