Conveying the relationship of twins in the womb through material properties and their spatial  arrangement, Gemini combines both traditional and innovative manufacturing processes and will be unveiled tomorrow at the "Vocal Vibrations" exhibition at La Laboratoire in Paris, France. You can follow the gala opening tonight on Twitter at #gemini.

The two piece cocoon-like structure combines subtractive and additive manufacturing and continues Oxman's exploration of the Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printing technology which enables a variety of material properties and color combinations to be printed in a single build.

"The twin chaise spans multiple scales of the human existence extending from the warmth of the womb to the stretches of the Gemini zodiac in deep space. It recapitulates a human cosmos, our body, like the constellation, drifting in quiet space. Here the duality of nature is expressed through the combination of traditional materials and state-of-the-art 3D printing," says Oxman. "Stratasys' new multi-material color 3D printing capability has allowed me to create a rich dialog between sound and light, rigid and flexible, natural and man-made materials and high and low spatial frequencies in ways that were impossible until now."
