2 ND INTERNATIONAL 'EDUCATION IN INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE' SYMPOSIUM THE PRODUCTION, TRANSFORMATION, TRANSITION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF KNOWLEDGE, vol.2, pp.108-117, 2020 (International Conference Book)
Three-dimensional printer technology has an important place in furniture and interior design which is a
global powerful sector in bringing our regional identity to the world culture. To respond to the rapidly
changing needs and expectations of the individual and society and to allow us to imagine new life models
beyond this must be the most fundamental problem of design education. The fact that 3D printing
technology enables the search for original forms that cannot be produced by molding, less waste
production, being a production method that can be reached by everyone paves the way for designers and
attracts great attention. ‘Today, the design profession is trying to imagine possible futures.’’ The
importance of creating an innovative profession, knowledge of innovative materials, and the ability to
recognize innovative production technologies, which will nurture creative thinking in design education, is
increasing day by day. This information will enable us to imagine new ideas of life models, to discuss and
to lead design production. In this context, the effect of 3D printer technology on the furniture sector has been
examined. In this paper, the method of the design studio and its contribution to the design education with
3D printer technology, which is carried out in the Interior Architecture Department of Marmara
University Faculty of Fine Arts is emphasized.
Keywords: 3D printer, furniture design, innovation, production, design education, prototype.
