Objet Ltd. [http://www.objet.com ], the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid
prototyping [http://www.objet.com/RESOURCES/Rapid_Prototyping ] and additive
manufacturing, today announced it is cooperating with world-leading consumer products
company Keter Plastic Ltd to create an exhibit of 3D-printed art pieces as part of an
innovative project to highlight young designers’ talents and support at-risk youth.
For the project, 70 art pieces were designed by d-Vision, the design internship
program by Keter Plastic and then 3D printed by Objet. The art pieces will be exhibited at
the Holon Design Museum, one of the leading museums for design and contemporary culture,
on May 30th. The art pieces will be auctioned at a special gala event to benefit ELEM and
‘Mifalot Chinuch Chevra’, both non-profit organizations that seek to help at-risk youth.
The designers at d-Vision developed their concepts in 3D CAD software and then 3D
printed them on Objet’s 3D printers. Created in rigid opaque materials
[http://www.objet.com/3D-Printing-Materials ], Objet’s high resolution 3D printers
[http://www.objet.com/3D-Printer/Objet_Connex_Family ] were able to precisely create
real-life 3D renditions of the designs – creating true works of art.
“This project brings together many elements that are central to d-Vision: outstanding
design and art, advanced technology, and commitment to our community,” said Professor Ezri
Tarazi, head of the d-Vision program. “We were delighted to see how our young designers’
artistic ideas turned into spectacular reality through the high-quality 3D printing
capabilities of Objet. We are looking forward to seeing how our combined efforts will
eventually help make a difference in young people’s lives, through the money raised by
auctioning the art pieces for ELEM and Mifalot Chinuch.”
Commenting on the project, David Reis, CEO for Objet said: “We are delighted to be
participating in this very prestigious design project and proud to be contributing to the
commendable work of ELEM and Mifalot Chinuch in working to ensure a better future for our
youth. By pairing d-Vision’s innovative and artistic designs with Objet’s advanced 3D
printing technology, we have created a powerful platform to expand the boundaries of art
and design while contributing to the betterment of the community.”

d-Vision was established in 2005 and is a unique internship program and the first of
its kind in Israel, for product development and design. The project was envisioned by Sami
Sagol, owner and chairman of Keter Group, with the aim of integrating between Academy in
industrial design, product engineering and technology to the needs and future development
of industry. Its focal point is to fill the missing link between Academia and Industry,
with the aim of cultivating the next generation of excellent young designers and product
developers that combine creativity with technology application.
Every year 15 outstanding design graduates are selected from the Design Academies in
Israel: Bezalel, Shenkar, Holon Institute of Technology and Hadassa. During the two year
program they get professional experience in product development for the international
The interns also develop innovative concepts, new and cutting-edge technologies are
introduced to renowned designers and visit professional international fairs.
d-Vision exhibited in international fairs such as Salone Satellite in Milano, in the
Dutch Design Week and others.
Prof. Ezri Tarazi and Ms. Tzipi Kunda head the program.
The program includes sponsored Masters Degree in Designing and offers job positions in
Keter to the graduates of the program.
The program also promotes contribution to the community and each team engages in a
special community project. This year the program managers decided that the contribution
will focus on two organizations: “Elem, Youth in Distress” and “Education and Social
