On July 15th, 2022 ´Enlighten ME´- the world’s first Printoptical Artwork – was unveiled at the Luximprint Creative Factories in Wemeldinge, Netherlands.
Today marked a new milestone in Luximprint history. After recently surpassing the 5th company anniversary, we were delighted to celebrate the launch of the new Luximprint ‘Printoptical Art’ business. The availability of the new optical 3D printing service for traditional ànd digital artists around the globe was illustrated by the presentation of Minke van de Zande’s Printoptical Artwork ‘Enlighten ME’. After three successive years of inspiration, thought exchanges, iterations and hard work, the impressive artwork finally saw the light. Together with an exclusive group of relatives, business relations, artists and press, the momentum was celebrated at the Luximprint Creative Factories in Wemeldinge, Netherlands.
´Enlighten Me´ by Minke van de Zande
The first ‘Printoptical Artwork’ includes a merge of traditional silk-art skills with novel optical 3D printing technologies and advanced lighting technologies. This unique blend results in a unique, never-before realized composition of stunning silk-art. The embodiment of printed optical features into a 3D-shaped ‘Uhu in Silk’ makes ‘Enlighten ME’ a highly desirable object for museums and private art collectors. Add to it the special lighting effects, fairy-tale-like storytelling and luminous side-effects, and a true ‘optical light art experience’ is born.
