Top 55 Customization Concepts in September

From 3D-Printed Furniture Joints to Hand-Cut Tea Labels

— September 30, 2015 — Art & Design
Balance beams turned into bars, 3D-printed furniture joints and quirky embroidered quotes are a few of the September 2015 customization ideas that could be identified as unusually artisanal.

As the desire for hand-crafted goods takes off, the desire for customization is being fused with quality products, creating the ultimate blend of uniqueness. In order to make this as easy as possible for consumers, brands are taking care of part of the creative process, while the rest is left up to the freedom of an individual. For instance, Nendo's 'Twig' chair features a one leg design that can be mixed with a variety of finishes in different styles, materials and colors.

By blending the high-quality of a manufactured product with DIY touches, customization can be achieved with ease.
