The MIT Self-Assembly Lab creates inflatables with their Rapid Liquid Printing technology

The Self-Assembly Lab, in collaboration with Swiss designer Christoph Guberan created inflatable lamps and other pieces for an exhibition at the Patrick Parrish Gallery in New York.

MIT professor Skylar Tibbits, who founded and co-directs the Lab, neatly describes its material experimentations as threefold: “One is on self-assembly, how things come together on their own; one is on programmable materials, how materials change shape, change property, and so forth.”
