The Seamless Blossom project explores the possibilities of 3D printing. Although many designers have already created some fun and creative products and even food, this venture goes beyond the object itself to create a more interactive performance, per se, that demonstrates the technology's versatility.

Developed by Richard Clarkson, a New York- and New Zealand-based product & furniture designer, the Seamless Blossom project involves 3D printed flowers that bloom when they are inflated. By using two varying materials (flexible and rigid), it "offers an opportunity to generate complex forms and dynamic structures that are impossible to make by any other means," as written by the designer. Overall, the Seamless Blossom project is the first inflatable 3D product that opens the door for many more.
