Beauty, again and again.

Cyrc merges art and technology with a circular economy model to produce unique and sustainable objects for the home. 

Banksia Collection

The Banksia collection is Cyrc’s oldest yet still evolving designs. Working with the new paradigm of additive manufacturing means that Cyrc creates new design vocabularies specific to the 3D printing process. This collection’s mix of organic and industrial languages has become a hallmark of our studio’s work. Inspired by tulip vases but rationalized for 3D printing - the connected branching structures of the Banksia collection can only be made by 3D printing. The Absalon, Augustus, and Mariette vases are just the tip of the iceberg for this design language - which has been used to create bespoke installations and exclusive offerings. 

Idio Collection

Vertical ribbed structures are now a ubiquitous design feature of 3D printed products. Here’s the secret: they visually hide the horizontal layer lines indicative of the 3D printing process. This collection took this common feature and gave it an idiosyncratic tweak - the vertical ribs bifurcate. The bifurcation is the common element in this collection. The change of vertical line densities before and after bifurcation gives another layer of motif to the forms. 

Forge Collection

Metals are forged through heat and physical manipulation, just like the plastics we 3D print. After printing, you can carefully heat the plastic again to make it pliable for mere seconds until it cools and solidifies again. It’s a small process window but one of immense potential. This collection explores post-printing manipulations to achieve results that are not possible by printing alone. For now, the Lukus vase is alone in this collection, but his friends are coming soon. 

Wicker Collection

One of 3D printing’s greatest strengths is the exploration of patterns on surfaces, and creating a weaving pattern is inevitable. However, you have an undulation that leaves holes in the surface when weaving. A perforated surface is not ideal for a vase. But we work digitally, creating our own algorithms. Between the changing directions of the weaving surface, we created a pattern that fills in the gaps and leaves behind a subtle pattern interwoven with the first. In the Wicker collection, problem-solving is transformed into exquisite craft. 

U Collection

The U collection is comprised of two iterations of a simple idea. The obviously named U and Double U bowls are derived by imagining a bowl the way one imagines folding spacetime to create a wormhole - all in an attempt to solve a relatively dry technical problem. The U bowls are an iconic example of Cyrc’s design methodology.
