This morning Fred Vacher contacted me from the Milan Furniture Fair. Where Fred is, 3D is, so I was curious to see what was in his zip attachment.
Seems Fred has been helping furniture designer Tom Dixon add some 3D and virtual to his stand.
If you’d like to check out Tom’s designs and stand virtually, and, hey, maybe even bump into Virtual Tom, try out his public 3DVIA Scenes for free. I’ve embedded it further down in this post.
This is Fred and Tom.
This is a design in Tom’s new Industry collection.
This is the same design in 3DVIA Scenes.
This is me broswing Tom’s collection virtually.
Addendum: I received some feedback that the way I sized the embedded scene “Virtual Milan” limited the virtual experience, so to replace the embedded scene, I’ve added a hyperlink to the full deal on 3dvia.com. Please click on the image above to visit the scene.
Some Virtual Milan tips from my maiden voyage:
- Opt for the Virtual Tour (let’s you zoom into the collection bits without stumbling around)
- Move one click at a time (will help you avoid wall collisions, etc.)
- Use your mouse to click on designs you like (will give you model information; name, specs, etc.)
If Fred can stop drinking Italian espressos and admiring all that furniture design, I may have some more “live” footage for you. (Sorry Fred; I’m just jealous you’re there and I’m not.)
So, do you like Tom’s new collection? I like the Mirror Ball Lights the best. Et vous?
P.S. Fred tells me Tom designs in SolidWorks and then imports to 3dvia.com. Which, BTW, if you’re in the US or UK, you can download Tom’s models from mydeco.com, try, then buy.
P.P.S I do NOT get a commission for any Tom Dixon models sold on 3dvia.com. Darn!
