Crania Anatomica Filigre Results

By on October 27th, 2011 in Design, Event


KickStarter, the crowdsourced fundraising site continues to amaze us. As does this particular project, Crania Anatomica Filigre. As you can see, it’s an extremely cool 3D print of a stylized skull by Chicago-based designer Joshua Harker. 
Harker’s fundraising goal was to collect USD$500 and get his work seen and touched by more people. It appears he made that goal: some 955 backers posted a mind blowing USD$77,271 for a variety of product combinations. At the USD$50 level and above you’d receive an actual sculpture. Of the 955 backers, it looks like Harker will be busy producing some 899 sculptures! As Harker says: “COMPLETE BITCHEN AWESOMENESS!”
We agree. But what does this mean? Some thoughts:
  1. People love skulls
  2. Joshua Harker is a kick-ass designer
  3. People are increasingly fascinated with 3D printed items
Probably is the real answer. We can’t wait to see his next project!
